Boy Scouts aid Curry, earn praise


Ann Curry has reported from the most dangerous places on earth, but when she broke her leg during a recent hike, it was a troop of New Jersey Boy Scouts that came to her rescue.

Curry was hiking with her family on Bear Mountain in New York’s Harriman State Park on April 5, when she broke a leg.

Members of Troop 368 from Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, stopped to help the injured NBC News correspondent, creating a splint for her ankle and fashioning a stretcher from logs and a tarp. They then carried her down the mountain.

Curry sent the troop a letter praising their actions and thanking them for their skills and professionalism.

Separation sought

Court records show the husband of comedian and “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd has filed for legal separation after nearly three years of marriage.

Lamar Sally filed for separation May 2 in Los Angeles Superior Court. The pair married in August 2011, and Sally’s filing states they are expecting a son who is due in July.

Sally is seeking custody of the child when he is born.

The filing also asks a judge to invalidate the couple’s prenuptial agreement based on fraud.
