This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
Script:
This is a true story...

In 1999, a 10 year old boy was a bat boy for a Little League game. He was in the wrong spot just as a player swung for a ball and the bat struck him right in the chest. The impact stopped his heart. Lucky for him, a woman watching the game jumped out of the stands, gave him CPR, and he began breathing again.

In 2006, a woman was eating in a restaurant. When she began choking, a young man working there rushed over and performed the Heimlich maneuver, causing her to cough out the food that was choking her.

The woman in the first story was named Penny Brown. The boy's name was Kevin Stephen.
The woman in the second story was named Penny Brown and the young man was Kevin Stephen, now a 17 year old Life Scout.

Penny had saved Kevin and, 7 years later, he repaid the favor by saving her life. He had learned his life saving skills through Boy Scouts and added to them through firefighter training.

Why do we teach first aid, life saving, and all these skills in Boy Scouts? Why is our motto "Be Prepared"? Well, this is a great example of 'WHY'.
