He saved the boy from the riptide!

siapod_0608_200x148.jpgAs Todd Staszak, 15, was bodyboarding at Hatteras, N.C., he heard cries for help. A man was trying to save his son and his son’s friend as a powerful riptide pulled the boys away from shore.

Listen as Todd and others describe how he rescued the boys in a true story of Scouts in Action.
