LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas mother is teaming up with a valley teen in an effort to change a Nevada law involving underage drinking.
Kimberly Caipa is working with 18-year-old Rose Asaf to introduce State Senate Bill 464. SB 464 will give immunity to minors who were drinking if they end up having to call 911 to help a fellow teen.
Similar laws already exist in 23 states and the District of Columbia.
"There isn't a law that you can pass that is going to stop kids from drinking, but there are things we can do to help them be safe. That's what this bill does,” Caipa said.
Caipa's motivation for the bill comes from her own pain. In 2011, her son, Brady Caipa who was underage at the time, died after drinking too much alcohol a house party in Henderson.
"If one of those kids would have called and if they would have done the right thing that night, he'd still be here,” said Caipa.
