Three Taken to Hospitals During Pope's Mass

District rescue workers responded to 37 calls for service this morning for the pope's mass, said Alan Etter, spokesman for the D.C. Fire and Emergncy Medical Services department.

The majority of the people were treated on the scene for problems like scrapes after falling down, he said. However, three people were transported to area hospitals, including one woman from the field of the stadium who dehydrated.

Two other people who were at the Metro station were taken to an area hospital, one of them for chest pains. None of the injuries appeared life threatening, Etter said.
