LDS Boy's Heroism Makes Boy's Life

SIGARD, UTAH -- Cameron Cowley wasn't looking to be a hero when he saved his father's life, but the 9-year-old Webelos Scout didn't hesitate to help.

On January 18, 1998, Mr. Cowley was helping a sick calf on his Siguard, Utah ranch when the calf's mother suddenly charged him. Mr. Cowley tried to run, but he slipped in the snow. Cameron yelled to scare the cow and keep her from trampling his father, but she ignored him. Cameron threw the corral's tag box at her and she was frightened enough for Cameron to help his father to safety.

Mr. Cowley, cut and bruised, was able to drive with Cameron to the hospital. Doctors said Mr. Cowley could have been killed if Cameron hadn't acted quickly. Cameron, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints received a Medal of Merit from the Boys Scouts of America for saving his father. His story appears in the March issue of Boy's Life, the official scouting magazine.
