Hanna Lottritz is a journalism student at the University of Nevada, Reno and she recently wrote an essay that has gone viral. It’s called “Why I won’t be taking shots on my 21st birthday” and it candidly shares the story of how Hanna ended up in a coma after a night of drinking in Yerington.
Hanna stopped by KUNR to talk with our news director Michelle Billman about what happened.
While out with a group of friends at the Night In The Country Music Festival in Yerington last summer, Hanna joined in on a drinking contest.
“We were chugging from a bottle of whiskey, and then, I have no memory after that,” she says.
A friend saw Hanna collapse and realized that she was having difficulty breathing. That friend quickly got Hanna help by taking her to the festival’s medical tent.
