WZTV FOX 17 - Top Stories
the time of the tragic shooting that killed 12 people during a midnight
premiere of the new Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora,
Colorado last night.
Mia Sharp Bransford called in to Tennessee Mornings Friday just hours
after she left the theater to recount her experience. Bransford,
who is a registered nurse, was in theater one at the time of the attack
that happened in theater nine.
When the emergency lights and sirens came on, she left through the
emergency exit and when she saw the wounded, immediately jumped into
help. "My training kicked in and I said 'hey I'm a nurse what can I do
to help?' And because of the nature of the scene with it being so
unsafe, there weren't a lot of EMTs or medical professionals there it
was just a lot of police officers and a few firefighters so they gladly
accepted another set of hands to help and just assess victims, take
pulses, talk to victims until more help could arrive."
Listen to the full interview above.
Note: At the time of this live interview reports out of Colorado stated 14 people were killed. The fatality count was later adjusted.

Take-out beer allowed again
May 25, 2013 19:58 GMT
MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A change in state law means that officials are no longer cracking down on restaurants selling takeout craft beer.
The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/Zl8y7f) reports the new regulations mean the Smoky Mountain Brewery in Maryville is now serving "growlers" again. Growlers are jugs filled with draft beer that customers can take with them when the leave.
State regulators began cracking down on the practice earlier this year, which led to complaints from restaurants and patrons.
The Copper Cellar family of restaurants stopped selling takeout beer in all four of its East Tennessee locations for a time, but made changes in some locations that allowed sales to resume before the new law was passed.
Now, all their locations are able to offer the beer for off-site consumption.
