They didn’t know it at the time, but they rescued NBC News’ Ann Curry, reports Bryan on Scouting..

The Scouts were hiking in Harriman State Park in New York on April 5.

That’s when they saw Curry on the ground in pain with her leg stretched out.

“We were hiking along, and we came to a trail intersection,” Boy Scout Leader Rick Jurgens said, “and a lady was sitting on the ground with her one leg out. We didn’t think anything of it, but one of the guys asked if everything is OK. She said, ‘No, not really. I think I broke my ankle.’ She told us to keep going, but the guys refused.”

The kids jumped into action as their Scout leader watched. They put together a perfect splint, then constructed a makeshift stretcher using pieces of wood they found in the forest. The boys were able to carry Curry back to civilization.

It wasn’t until they saw a Park Ranger when they were told they had just made a celebrity sighting.

The sighting was confirmed when they received a letter of thanks from Curry.

Ann also tweeted the following on her official Twitter account.
