WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (WGNO) – New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson is still getting used to the mountains of West Virginia.

A team source said Benson made a trip to the emergency room Tuesday to be treated for dehydration. Benson was given fluids, then released according to the source.

The source said Benson is monitored on a daily basis by team doctors. The source said Benson was told to drink plenty of water, to ward off hydration issues in the thinner air.

Mr. Benson celebrated his 87th birthday July 12th.
