The Northern Star Council and Philmont Scout Ranch Scouting Communities are morning the death of a member of our Scouting family. Timothy Nunn, a fourteen-year-old Scout from Troop 123 in Northern Star Council collapsed while hiking at Philmont Scout Ranch on Friday, July 24, 2009.
According to a statement by the Boy Scouts, the health and safety of participants is a top priority. His group immediately performed CPR until emergency medical personnel from Philmont Scout Ranch and Cimarron, New Mexico, arrived. Unfortunately, despite these efforts, they were unable to resuscitate him.
After being notified of their son’s death, Timmy’s parents flew to New Mexico; they later released the following statement:
Timmy loved Boy Scouts. All preliminary indications are that there is nothing anyone could have done, whether he would have been at home or out on a hike, to save him. God blessed us as parents to have given us Timmy, and God blessed Timmy to have given him Boy Scouts and the opportunity to go to Philmont. He loved Boy Scouts, baseball and his family and he died doing something he loved.
The family encouraged the Scouts in Timmy’s Troop to continue their trek at Philmont, and is postponing their son’s funeral until early August, after the group returns from New Mexico.
