    A bystander had begun CPR while someone else called 911.

    Medics flew Keller to Rady Children's Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

    Sabrina’s troop leader, Barbara Jehl, learned of Keller’s death and returned to the school Friday morning to talk with news reporters about the scout who she called “real friend-maker.”

    “She recruited more girls to our troop than anyone else,” said Jehl. “She was just a nice girl.”

    As a prize for selling the most cookies in the county, the Girl Scouts arranged a helicopter ride for Keller.

    School is not in session at Woodland Park Middle School due to a teacher development day according to the school's website.
