A Georgia teen is dead following a collapse at a beauty pageant.
Paine College in Augusta released an email Thursday sharing their sympathy for the death of 17-year-old Fredricia Rouse.
Officials say Rouse was a member of the Paine College Upward Bound Program and fell ill during an activity there at the college.
She was transported to Georgia Regents and passed away Wednesday.
A friend of Rouse says she can't believe her best friend is gone.
"Now I'm like, what am I going to do for Spring Break? What am I going to do for graduation? Who am I going to graduate with?" said Tashun Livingston. "What am I going to do for my senior trip and all that. Like, we had plans for Spring Break and that's next week, and now, I don't have any plans with anybody because my best friend is gone."
There is no word yet on what caused her death. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday April 9.
