Drunk teens at concert flood hospitals

More than 90 people, including dozens of teens, were taken to local hospitals last Friday after drinking too much alcohol at a concert in Connecticut that featured Chance the Rapper, the police said.

"A 'typical' concert is around 20 to 30 transports. Sixty would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 last night," deputy police chief Brian Foley told The Hartford Courant.
