BROOKLYN - The family of a girl who died of an asthma attack three years ago is celebrating today as Briana's Law moves one step closer to becoming a state law.
Briana's Law, requiring all law enforcement agents to receive CPR retaining every two years, just passed in the New York state Assembly.
Briana Ojeda was 11 when her mother drove the wrong way down a one-way street to get her daughter to the hospital, because she was having an asthma attack. Carmen Ojeda says she was stopped by a police officer, who refused to give Briana CPR. Ojeda says if he had, Briana might still be alive.
Ojeda says she hopes the law will save people's lives. The bill now goes up for vote in the Senate.
