NBC news correspondent Ann Curry has been to Iraq and Afghanistan, and some will even say she survived Matt Lauer.
But Curry needed to have some help from a well-prepared group of New Jersey boy scouts after running into trouble while hiking in New York last month.
The New York Post reported that members of Boy Scout Troop 368 from Berkeley Heights gave Curry first aid after she fell and broke her ankle while hiking n New York’s Harriman State Park April 5. The Boy Scout troop saw the reporter on the side of a trail with her leg extended.
Scoutmaster Rick Jurgens, a professional firefighter and EMT said Curry told the troop she thought she broke her ankle. The boys made a splint out of sticks and a tarp. “We work on these requirements, and here’s an opportunity where it was a true test of all those First Class, Second Class first-aid requirements,” Jurgens said, according to Inquisitr. “They got to use it for real, and they did an outstanding job.”
