6:45 pm
knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. some relationships you stick with. over time, they get even better. that's why more people stick with humana medicare advantage.

6:47 pm
texas, students hit by drivers blowing right by school buses. ignoring signs and flashing lights. >> we're close to 1,000 violations just in the first week of school. >> reporter: in both cases, the kids were okay. but on average, drivers passing school buses kill ten kids every year. then there's the close calls. in washington state, three girls almost hit by an suv. >> better stop that car! >> reporter: in west virginia, three cars pass by, nearly striking this boy. here in colorado, bus drivers report illegal passing can occur more than 500 times every day. >> i think folks, particularly that time of day, in the morning, are trying to get somewhere and just aren't paying the sort of attention they should. >> reporter: nationwide, a survey of bus drivers reports
