READING, Pa. -

Some Berks County Girl Scouts have very cute patients to practice their first aid skills on.

Girls from Brownie Troop 16-48 took a tour of Saint Joseph Medical Center Monday night.

After getting a lesson in first aid, the girls got to test out their new skills on their favorite stuffed animals.

"Instead of doing it on themselves, it's good to practice on something they're comfortable with, and then they'll understand it a little bit more," said Marie Smith.

The girls are working on their first aid badges.

They also got to look at x-rays of broken bones, see the pediatric unit and more.
