Quote from Mesa (AZ) Tribune
"... Also earning passenger praise were some 30 Riverside, Calif., Boy
Scouts who gathered at attention after the wreck and awaited instructions
from firefighters, Said Ray Sipe, Kingman police spokesman.
The boys rendered basic first aid and soothing words to the injured. [a
person] who boarded the train with the Scouts in San Bernardino, Calif.,
marveled at them. 'I saw those little Boy Scouts helping people out. They
were so calm and cool for being so young.'
'It makes me proud,' said Joey Robinson, director of communications for the
Los Angeles Area Council of the Boy Scouts. 'It proves they were doing
what they were taught to do.'
To that I ad AMEM!
