Shame it happened but the response was outstanding
"We knew that we need to place tourniquets on wounds that were bleeding too much. We knew we need to apply pressure and gauze. We had first-aid kits, we had everything," he said.
They not only had the equipment they needed, but they also had the training to use it, very cool.
"They knew what to do, they knew where to go, and they prepared well,"
It is the same with self defense, if you do not train & prepare, you will be relying on luck rather than skill, & if you are unprepared more likely to panic, with the training they saved their fellow scouts, instead of waiting for the professionals to get there.
A lot like calling 911 & the police are only minutes away....
