A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
The Webelos Scouts (4th Graders) of Pack 19 just finished their First Responder Adventure a few months ago. An accident happened on May 7, 2016 in which a Scout kept calm and acted quickly to save his 5-year-old brother from drowning.
An accident happened on May 7, 2016 in which a Scout kept calm and acted quickly to save his 5-year-old brother from drowning. This Scout was fishing from the dock in his back yard. He had caught a large fish and so his younger brother and younger sister went down to the pond to watch. Apparently, the Scout's 5-year-old brother, saw some moss that he wanted to touch and reached down to the water from the dock. The Scout, seeing his brother reaching down, started to say, "NO, you shouldn't..." And his brother was in the water just that fast. The Scout dropped his pole and immediately laid down on his stomach, reached out grabbing his brother's shirt and then arm and pulled him up onto the dock. His brother was quite rattled by the whole incident. He was crying as they got close to the house.
Later in the evening, his mother asked the Scout how he knew what to do. He said, "It wasn't that big of a deal Mom, but I guess Scouts taught me some things, like laying down, reaching out, and to not become a victim yourself."
