A group of Boy Scouts from New Jersey helped rescue an injured Ann Curry when she broke her ankle during a recent hiking trip to Bear Mountain in New York, according to a scouting magazine.
The television news personality sent a message Friday evening on Twitter about her rescue last month, saying, “If you break a leg on on a mountain, I hope Boy Scout Troop 368 finds you. Boy am I glad they found me." Scouting Magazine wrote about it on its online blog.
According to the magazine, Curry was hiking at Harriman State Park in New York on April 5 when she stumbled and broke her ankle. A group of Scouts from Troop and Crew 368 from Berkeley Heights, Union County, N.J., were on a training hike at the time. They came across Curry without knowing who she was.
“We were hiking along, and we came to a trail intersection,” a Scout leader, Rick Jurgens, recalled, “and a lady was sitting on the ground with her one leg out. We didn’t think anything of it, but one of the guys asked if everything is OK. She said, ‘No, not really. I think I broke my ankle.’ She told us to keep going, but the guys refused.”
