Shannon Alert Bill moves forward

A mother's mission to raise awareness of how simple head injuries can be deadly for people on blood thinners is moving forward at the state capitol.

Angela Mudd told 27 NEWSFIRST late Wednesday that the Shannon Alert Bill passed the house by a unanimous vote.

It heads to the state senate next week.

Mudd's daughter, Shannon, died last year after a minor head injury led to bleeding on the brain that put her in a coma.

Shannon had been taking blood thinners while recovering from cancer.

The Shannon Alert would help emergency crews tell if a person is taking blood thinners if the patient wears a red bracelet.
