TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Boy Scouts live their motto, helping to save the life of one of their own.

Assistant Scout Master Gary Buscombe's heart stopped at a recent scout meeting. That's when his Troop 26 family jumped into action. Other scout leaders performed CPR on Buscombe and used a defibrillator to restart his heart. 

EMSA paramedics say the men's emergency training and fast action saved Buscombe's life.

"When you see someone go down and you know that you have to use first aid skills, CPR skills, Boy Scout motto is to be prepared. Mottos don't mean anything unless you have the skills to back them up," said Gerald Bradley, Troop 26 Scout Leader.

Troop 26 honored Buscombe at Monday night’s scout meeting with a special lesson on CPR.
