At 20 years old, Austin Collins was in prime health and studying to be a police officer.
Then at a family gathering last Thanksgiving, he developed a sudden, blinding headache and became extremely nauseous.
“I thought I had the flu – then I woke up two months later,” he said.
Collins had experienced something that affects 8 out of 100,000 people each year in the United States – a ruptured brain aneurysm.
He had gone to lay down in his mother’s car, and if he had been left unattended, he could have died.
