Sacramento-Area Boy Scout Killed in New Mexico Flash Flood on Camping Trip
SACRAMENTO -- A storm so strong it took the life of a young boy from Sacramento. New Mexico State Police said about 4:30 a.m. Saturday, a storm created a flash flood in the back country of Philmont Scout Ranch -- a 200-square-mile high adventure Boy Scout base in Northern New Mexico. Representatives of Philmont said their camp has an age requirement. Participants must be 14 or must have finished eighth grade.
