Lake Zurich Boy Scout Troop 93 was recognized for aiding two victims of a motorcycle crash in South Dakota late last month.
According to Medicine Mountain Scout Ranch, Lake Zurich Boy Scout Troop 93 was hiking on June 27 on the Sunday Gulch Trail in Sylvan Lake, South Dakota.
The lead group of hikers heard a motorcycle slide off the road along Highway 87. Five of the scouts and the scout master ran to assist the two riders who were trapped under their motorcycle.
The scouts provided first aid and worked together to lift the Harley-Davidson motorcycle off the unconscious riders. Meanwhile, several other scouts helped clear traffic and call 911.
“The Scouts of Troop 93 provided first responder assistance until skilled help and EMT’s arrived at the scene,” officials added.
One of the scout leaders assisted with patient care before emergency crews arrived and then helped them carry the victims out.
Both of the riders regained consciousness before being loaded into the ambulance.
