The Brills say their son began smoking several times a day and when he did, it kicked off a 71-day stretch without a single seizure. Even though they're facing a reckless conduct charge, the parents say they'd do it again to protect their child. "Nothing else was working," said Suzeanna Brill. "I can't have my kid dying because no one wants to listen."

The Travis County Sheriff's Office dive team found the body of a Hispanic man near Bob Wentz Park Monday morning.
The discovery comes a day after authorities began a search for a man who went missing while trying to rescue a woman drowning in Lake Travis Sunday.
According to TCSO spokesperson Kristen Dark, the sheriff's office cannot confirm yet if the body recovered near Bob Wentz Park is the same person who went missing while trying to save a drowning woman. Dark said they will know more once the Travis County Medical Examiners' Office releases the man's identity.
A woman believed to be in her 30s was swimming near Bob Wentz Park about 6:20 p.m. Sunday when she began having trouble, Dark told KVUE.
Three men jumped into the water to help rescue the woman. Two of those men brought the woman back to the shore, but a third man did not make it out of the water, Dark said.
A helicopter and sonar boats helped search for the man Sunday evening, but the search was eventually called off due to a lack of sunlight and low visibility.
The search for the missing man, who is believed to be Hispanic and in his 30s, picked up again at 7 a.m. Monday. TCSO said they used dive teams and sonar boats to search for his body.
At least half of Bob Wentz Park will be closed to the public as crews continue their search, Dark said.
Adrian Garza, a Houston man visiting the park, was one of the men who helped rescue the drowning woman. He told KVUE the missing man who also helped rescue the woman deserves recognition.
"I'm just a normal person trying to do something good. And I wouldn't say that I'm a hero. And if you were to call me a hero, I believe there was another hero right next to me, and eventually, the one that was in the water. He is a hero," he said.
Garza said his own safety never crossed his mind when he jumped into the water.
"What if it happened to my family? What if it was one of mine? And if I wasn't around, I would have loved for somebody else to [have taken] action and to [have] helped to save this lady's life," he said.
ATCEMS transported the woman who was rescued from the water to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Dark did not have an update on her condition Sunday night.
This is the third swimmer to disappear at Lake Travis this month alone. The first was on May 5 and the second on May 19. Officials said all three swimmers were not wearing life jackets.
