Scouts in Action

He saved his mom after the SUV crash!

sia_pod_200×148a.jpgTravis Mason, 18, and his mother, Kym Mason, were driving during a rainstorm. Their SUV went off the slippery road and rolled to the bottom of a ravine, throwing Mrs. Mason from the vehicle.

In the overturned SUV, Travis heard his mother crying for help. She was badly hurt.

Listen as Travis describes what he did to treat his mother in a true story of Scouts in Action.
