Eagle Scout Helping During London Terror Attack

Eagle Scout praised for bravery, service after London terror attack

Tobias Elwood tried to resuscitate a policeman

This note from a local Den Leader:  I had the sad task this week of reporting on the terror attack in London but I was struck by one man's courage in the midst of the chaos: Tobias Ellwood, a member of Parliament. You will have seen his picture in the news reports. He stands out - dressed in a business suit - his forehead smeared with blood - kneeling beside a police officer who had been stabbed multiple times - trying to save his life. Mr Ellwood ran towards the danger as everyone else fled - not knowing what he would encounter - knowing only that he wanted to help, that he could help. He is an army veteran - and he is an Eagle Scout.

More details are available on this Scouting Magazine posting, which explains how an American-born Eagle Scout is currently a member of the British Parliament:
