Over 30,000 people showed up in East Point yesterday, a suburb of Atlanta, to obtain applications to receive Section 8 housing vouchers. The line began forming on Sunday, three days prior to the scheduled date the applications were to be handed out.
Thousands converged in the 90+ degree heat and at least 62 people needed medical attention and 20 of them were transported to a hospital.
A baby went into a seizure in the extreme heat and had to be stabilized at a hospital. Many people passed out from dehydration and heat exhaustion and several were removed on stretchers.
