Default Boy Scout Jamboree

Four Scout leaders electrocuted while erecting a tent. Such a horrible tragedy for an event that was meant for fun. My thoughts and prayers for all of the scouts and families.

Liam, The scout leaders died when the tent poles hit the electrical wires.

Weirdness lately with the electrocutions. This weekend in our hometown a little 5 yr old boy was playing with one of those electric rods to stir up nite crawlers & somehow got in his kiddy pool with it & he died. Then a woman up around Sioux City I believe it was was using one of those things & was standing in water also & she died, now these scout leaders. Sad sad outcomes.

So very sad and apparently the sons were there with their Dads - a troop from Alaska.
