KINGMAN, Arizona (AP) -- Fifteen-year-old Geoff Boyd did his
duty after the Amtrak train derailment early Saturday.
After all, Boyd is a Boy Scout.
Thirty scouts, including eight adults, were aboard the Southwest
Chief when it derailed after a bridge trestle collapsed. About half of
the 330 passengers were injured, and one was in critical condition
Saturday night, officials said.
Several passengers pointed to the Scouts as heroes who helped people
out of the derailed cars, provided basic first aid and comforted
those too injured to move.
