Yes, NBC’s Ann Curry is thanking a New Jersey Boy Scout troop for helping her out when she broke her ankle while hiking last month.
Here’s what happened, according to a lengthy Scouting Magazine blog post:
On April 5, 2014, Scouts from Troop and Crew 368 out of Berkeley Heights, N.J., were on a Philmont training hike through Harriman State Park in New York when they came across Curry, sitting on the ground, one leg stuck out. They asked her if she needed help and she said no, but they knew she did. They quickly built a splint and next, a makeshift stretcher. Curry’s husband and son went ahead to get their SUV and drive it to the trailhead. The Scouts helped Curry into the front seat of the car. She was off to the hospital before rangers arrived.
The really interesting part? None of the guys seems to have stopped to take a selfie of the mishap. There ought to be some sort of badge for that!
"If you break a leg on on a mountain, I hope Boy Scout Troop 368 finds you. Boy am I glad they found me," @AnnCurry tweeted.
