Boy Scouts Come To Rescue Of NBC’s Ann Curry

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.
