Via Saints spokesman @GregBensel: Mr. Benson was treated by medical personnel after needing some oxygen. The altitude got to him. He's fine— New Orleans Saints (@Saints) August 5, 2014
A week ago, Benson was treated for dehydration, also after attending camp. He was released after being given fluids.
In May, he was hospitalized after losing his balance and falling off the podium at a New Orleans Super Bowl bid presentation.
Benson also owns the New Orleans Pelicans.
