The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is crediting a teenage Boy Scout for his quick thinking in administering aid to an injured man. The teen was riding on his ATV when he discovered a man bleeding heavily from what appeared to be a self-inflicted wrist injury, reports Huffington Post. The brave Boy Scout stayed with the 46-year-old man until medical help arrived.

How often do we hear about teens who do something good? The news is often filled with all of the negative incidents that occur with our youth today. I can't tell you how many times I have read on these posts how the youth of today is so corrupt. Here we have a story about something positive and heroic that a young man did and all people can do is focus on the negative. This young man deserves respect and applause for what he has done. I find it sad and disrespectful that some are just harping on gay politics here and are giving no consideration for what this young man has done.
Good Grief!!! The Scout saved someone's life that had tried to commit suicide! Bravo for the teen! The Scouts (Boy & Girl) are great programs! Do we really have to interject sex into everything? BTW, I hope the Scout gets a commendation and the other guy gets some needed help. Do you folks really have to tear apart every story??? P.S. I was a Girl Scout.
