Missing Boy Scouts Found in Arkansas


Six Boy Scouts and two troop leaders who were missing after a weekend camping excursion in an Arkansas national park were rescued via helicopter on Tuesday. The group apparently got stuck in the forest while waiting for a high river to go down. The junior scouts were predictably concerned about how much they were going to get in trouble. “Just was worrying about my parents, how are they going to freak out, are they going to freak out,” said Stephen Miller, one of the rescued kids. And also: “They seemed to be more excited about being able to ride in a helicopter than being rescued,” said National Guard Captain Chris Heathscott. Kids!
