Open Window for Life: Tonight on #TheLateFeed

This tiny credit card-sized device was invented because of our investigation into the death of Shanell Anderson. She drowned while trapped in her sinking SUV. With this device, she could have saved herself.

Imagine for a moment, being trapped in your own car in a flash flood.

There are flood waters rising around you.

Your engine's shorted out, you can't roll down the windows or get your sunroof open. You've got nowhere to go; no way to get out of your car.

The water is starting to come in from the floor vents in the car.

What do you do? How do you escape?

Is there anything you can do to get yourself out of the car quickly?

What if you had something that could break the window like this?

Wednesday night on The Late Feed, 11Alive's Brendan Keefe talks with the inventor of the OWL: Open Window for Life, and learns how it was inspired by our two-year-long investigation into the broken 911 system that cost Shannell Anderson her life one foggy morning.
