Scouts Save Security Guard After Heart Attack

The Scouts of Troop 901 out of Cypress, Texas, were in the middle of a first-aid training session when they got a big surprise: a security guard in the building they were using suffered a heart attack.

What are the chances? At first, the boys thought it was part of their first-aid training. Then they got a close look at the man and realized his condition was very much real.

The Scouts and their first-aid instructor got the man stable until paramedics arrived. Their efforts played a major role in saving his life.
