Are There No Scouts Left in England?


British rescue workers let a man’s body float in a pond because they weren’t “trained” to rescue him. They could have waded out to him. (H/T, Shall Not Be Questioned)

Somewhere, Robert Baden-Powell must be crying.

UPDATE–It’s very perplexing to me that not one of the bystanders waded in to affect a rescue. The first two merit badges I earned back in 1958 were Swimming and Lifesaving.
