A 12-year-old California girl has passed away in a Las Vegas hospital after officials say she had a heart attack while riding a roller coaster on the Las Vegas Strip.

Catlynne Shaw was revived with the help of an off-duty Clark County firefighter who was with his own family last Wednesday at the Circus Circus Adventuredome. She remained in critical condition until she passed away at 2:06 p.m. according to her father, Eric Shaw.
