Triple digit temperatures didn’t stop kids across the Sacramento Valley from playing organized sports outside Monday.
In Elk Grove, 102 out of the 108 children who signed up for the FC Soccer Camp showed up to play and practice.
“That’s a good idea. Kids should be drinking a liter an hour out there” says Doctor Richard Gould, a Sacramento pediatrician. “The problem is a lot of Sacramento kids aren’t used to this heat since it was in the 70’s last week.”
If a child is feeling overheated, Gould tells FOX40 that heat exposure should be treated with cooling the child down with water, air conditioning and even a cool bath.
