10-year-old girl sacrifices life to save others

Lakeside, Calif. A 10-year-old in California is being called a hero after saving two young girls' lives but sacrificing her own. 

The girl killed was identified was Kiera Larsen. The whole neighborhood is heartbroken over her selfless act. 

“She is truly a hero. She will forever be my kids’ guardian angel,” said Alissa Jenkins. Alissa is the mother of 1-year-old Adison and 2-year-old Emma, the two girls Kiera saved.

The three girls were playing Monday when a Mercedes SUV somehow started rolling down a sloped driveway in Lakeside.

Neighbors say little Kiera pushed the two girls to safety, but she was run over by the car. She died on the way to the hospital.

Police are trying to figure out how the car started moving downhill. A GoFundMe has been setup for Kiera’s family.
