GUILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Connecticut foundation dedicated to the safety of children is hosting a 5K run in support of the foundation and a law that could prevent accidental deaths due to unsecured weapons.
The Ethan Miller Song Foundation has had a goal of keeping kids safe. The foundation was formed after the tragic death of Ethan Song in 2018.
Ethan, who was just 15 years old, died after accidentally shooting himself with an unsecured gun at a friend’s house. Now, a state law in his name has been put into place to require the safe storage of a firearm in Connecticut.
News 8’s Alyssa Taglia was joined by Mike Song, Ethan’s Father, to discuss the upcoming 5K run and how Ethan’s Law keeps kids safe.
