The proper thing is to cancel the Jamboree after a memorial service is held.

Wow. That's just awful. We had a huge "all class reunion" at our local fairgrounds a few years ago, and a draft horse bolted from a barn, tore through the crowd and seriously hurt a lot of people.

You just can't always tell what hazards are out there.

That's too bad. I never made it to a Jamboree when I was in Scouts, but went to plenty of Camporees, Scout Camps, 50-mile hike as well as monthly campouts (rain, snow, sunshine--didn't matter). I look back on the Scouts with fond memories, and it was events like this that made it all worthwile.

Such a tragic accident. Prayers lifted for the leaders who were lost, their families and friends, and the BSA family.

PS: My time within the BSA (Eagle Scout, 1968) was in no small part instrumental in my success in later adulthood. I cannot encourage FReepers, their families, and their acquaintances enough to support the Boy Scouts of America and to encourage their children to enroll in this exceptional organization.

They had electricity at a Jamboree?

A tremendous tragedy, the more so because it occurred at an event designed to be celebratory.

Deaths by electrocution generally don't get much publicity, I suppose because they're usually one at a time (the four deaths in this case being an exception). But I can remember three deaths in the Charlotte area alone in the recent past (and more, I'm sure, that I've forgotten): a construction worker who contacted a live wire; a moviegoer who leaned against an improperly grounded electric sign in front of the theater; and a concert patron who stepped on a live wire at the ironically-named Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

Be careful, folks. We tend to take electricity for granted. But it needs to be respected.

what a shame, prayers for the families of these dedicated volunteers.  Souters give so much of their time so that boys can have a great time while learning timeless values and citizenship training which will last a lifetime.
