Twenty children reportedly fell sick due to heat in the Netherlands Thursday afternoon. The children were at a summer camp in the town of Leusden as temperatures topped 100 degrees in several parts of the country, according to the Associated Press. The AP cited Dutch media reports that said some of the children were taken to a hospital, and that a local emergency services coordinator tweeted that first responders were administering first aid at the scene.
