New Jersey Boy Scouts Rescue Ann Curry
Boy Scout Troop 368 from Berkeley Heights, NJ were hiking in a park in upstate New York when they came across NBC News reporter Ann Curry.
Curry broke her ankle while hiking a rocky trail in Harriman State Park back on April 4th. When they found her, she was sitting on the ground in pain. So they Boy Scouts acted quickly, utilizing all of their training. According to Scouting Magazine, they made a splint and carried the broadcaster down the steep trail in a homemade stretcher.
NBC Philadelphia says that Ann Curry sent thank you letters to all of the boys in the troop, mentioning that they went “above the call of duty.”
Pretty cool story that these Boy Scouts will be able to tell their children!
