DRINKING & DRIVING

Today, the students were shown a scenario of what could happen during a drunk driving accident.


Students that participated in this scenario said it was "scary" and they hope that they "never have to experience this in real life"


This practice scenario was presented to the Juniors and Seniors as to what actually happens during a drinking and driving accident by The Affton Fire Department, STL County Police, and Kutis Funeral Home.


In the secenario: One minute they are enjoying their prom and the next minute......one person was taken by ambulance to the hospital, one was arrested for driving, and one was taken to the funeral home. Please understand the dangers of drinking and driving - Just don't do it - It really isn't worth it.
