NEWARK, N.J. (May 12, 2014) NBC correspondent Ann Curry has reported from the most dangerous places on earth, but it was on a recent hike that she broke her leg.
And a troop of New Jersey Boy Scouts came to her rescue.
Curry was hiking with her family on April 5 on Bear Mountain in New York's Harriman State Park when she broke a leg.
Members of Troop 368 from Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, stopped to help the injured NBC News correspondent, creating a splint for her ankle and fashioning a stretcher from logs and a tarp.
Then they carried her down the mountain.
Curry sent the troop a letter praising their actions and thanking them for their skills and professionalism.
Troop leaders say most of the scouts didn't know they had rescued someone famous.
