A troop of Boy Scouts was being used as "guinea pigs" in a
Test of emergency systems. A mock earthquake was staged,
And the Scouts impersonated wounded persons who were to
Be picked up and cared for by the emergency units.
One Scout was supposed to lie on the ground and await his
Rescuers, but the first-aid people got behind schedule, and the
Scout lay "wounded" for several hours.
When the first-aid squad arrived where the casualty was
Supposed to be, they found nothing but a brief note: "Have
Bled to death and gone to McDonalds to refill."
