LANGLEY, Ark. — Six Louisiana Boy Scouts stranded by high water in an Arkansas forest said after being reunited with their families yesterday that they never feared camping in an area where 20 people died in a flash flood last summer “I was worried that my parents would freak out,’’ said Ian Fuselier, 13. A National Guard helicopter plucked the boys and two scoutmasters from the Albert Pike Recreation Area at daybreak yesterday after the boys’ parents spent 36 hours awaiting their rescue.Allen Miller, the father of 13-year-old Stephen Miller, was confident of a happy ending.“I wasn’t worried, not with that group,’’ Miller said.
