The Boy Scouts saved a life in the mountians of Wyoming recently.
Included in their extensive preparation for the trip (you don’t want to be the next Boy Scout Troop In The News) was a satellite phone and a GPS unit. When a man in a neighboring camp site had a heart attack, they were able to call in an air rescue unit, and give them exact coordinates. Late Friday night at the University Of Utah Medical Center the man underwent successful open heart surgery for a five-vessel heart attack.
He lived to tell about it, and has nothing but nice things to say about the men and boys who saved him up on the mountain. It turns out not to be so bad, being the next Boy Scout Troop In The News.
