Brave Wildlife Officer Leads Boyscouts to Safety During Tornado [VIDEO]

An Oklahoma Boy Scout troop is safe after a tornado ripped through their campground, thanks to a wildlife officer.

While staying at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge, Fawn Creek Campground these Boy Scouts had a close encounter with a tornado.

Federal Wildlife Officer, Matt Belew, was there to save the boys from the tornado.


Troop Leader Darryl Laux told reporters, “We knew there were storms in the area, but we didn’t realize they were that bad.”

Belew told reporters, “The tornado was on the ground a few miles away, approaching the Wildlife Refuge.”

Belew helped get the scouts into a shelter as the power went out. After the tornado passed the campground was a mess of broken limbs and uprooted trees.
