In brief: Heat Stroke!
Can be Fatal! Heat stroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is considered a medical emergency.
If you suspect that someone has heat stroke -- also known as sunstroke -- call an ambulance immediately and give first aid until paramedics arrive. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/heat-stroke-symptoms-and-treatment#1
