Scouts and Their Leaders Rescued Off Utah Lake

Two adults -- and four boy scouts -- are recovering today, after a harrowing evening, floating in a disabled boat, at the south end of Utah Lake.

The six weren't seriously injured -- but got a scare -- when a storm began rolling in, Tuesday night, just about the time the boat failed.

Rescuers transferred the boys into a working boat -- then towed the broken vessel to shore.

Police say the best move the leaders made was to take along a cell phone, and use it quickly when conditions went downhill.
