HARRISBURG, Pa. -

Some local residents spent the day in Harrisburg to show support for a bill aimed at streamlining organ donation.

A group of 20 Lehigh Valley residents joined about 400 other people to stage a "die-in" on the Capitol steps.

Participants fell down every 18 seconds to represent the fact that a Pennsylvanian dies every 18 hours waiting for an organ.

Monday's demonstration was a show of support for House Bill 30 which supporters say will increase the number of organs available for those who need them.
