House Education Committee to take up AED bill

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – A bill to require operating AED devices to be present at sports facilities will be discussed today by the Indiana House Education Committee.

The bill would establish what’s being called “Jake’s Law” after Jake West. He died after having sudden cardiac arrest at football practice at the age of 17 in 2013 in LaPorte.
