“It's almost unbelievable,” said Stephan, who is also an Eagle Scout.

The Red Cross is planning an award presentation for Stephan, and so are the Boy Scouts.

Great news for scouts and the morals they represent.

Hope his Scoutmaster, District Leadership, and Council Leadership is paying attention; there's a BSA Lifesaving Medal merited for him.

Years ago, Boy's Life, the Boy Scout's official magazine, had an article each month that focused on a scout who'd saved a life. Some of the stories were absolutely amazing. I haven't picked up an issue in years, so I don't know if they still have that article or not.
