They say someone saw another person apparently struggling near 18th Avenue and Pierce Street at around noon on Tuesday. Paramedics say the patient showed signs of possible heat exhaustion.

“Drink plenty of water & stay out of the sun if you can,” they stated on social media.

The Denver International Airport recorded 101 degrees, a record-breaking temperature for June 15.
