A 13-year-old girl died while trying to save a kitten from an oncoming car in North Florida.
Sixth grader Melissa Tindell was at a bus stop Friday near Panama City when she saw the kitten.
She ran into the road and was hit by a driver who tried to swerve around her.
The principal of Melissa's school, Merritt Brown Middle School, said several students were with her and saw the wreck.
She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Grief counselors were at the school to talk with students,
teachers and faculty.
It was unclear what happened to the kitten.
