He saved his dad from the rapids!

siapodcast-200×148.jpgAs Brian Butterfield, 17, and other Scouts and parents were navigating the rapids of the Deschutes River in Oregon, Brian’s raft hit a rock and turned sideways, wrapping itself around a fallen tree.

Brian made it to shore, but his father, Bill Butterfield, was trapped.

Listen as Brian and his dad describe the rescue in a true story of Scouts in Action.
