WSIL Blood Drives collect 205 pints of blood

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- The Red Cross collected 205 pints of blood at the WSIL blood drives this weekend. 

Officials said that blood can help up to 615 hospital patients.

They said they would have likely collected more blood if a power outage at the Time Square Mall in Mt. Vernon hadn't forced that station to close a couple of hours before it was supposed to. 

The blood can be separated into platelets, plasma and red blood cells.
