`More than 300 American Boy Scouts at an ill-fated jamboree have fallen ill in the heat while waiting for President George W. Bush.
Mr Bush was to arrive at a memorial service for four scout leaders killed a day earlier while pitching a tent under a power line.
His visit yesterday to the Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill was postponed because of the threat of severe thunderstorms and strong wind. Instead, Mr Bush is scheduled to visit today.
But before his appearance was called off, many scouts became ill as temperatures rose into the upper-30s.
Dozens were sent to hospitals, where they were in stable condition last night.’
