EUGENE, Ore. - Imagine this: working manual labor for 12 hours in 90+ degree weather.
"Concrete, road crews, roofing - you're outside. it is just hot," said John Davey, co-owner River Roofing. "They've been down that heat stroke road, they know what it looks like. They're watching out for each other."
Some of the workers try taking cover by dressing head to toe.
But Eric Chrysler says there's really no escape.
He says the secret is just simply staying hydrated.
"Probably close to like a gallon a day at least," he said.
