    Nearly three months ago, 16-year-old Elise Fellner of Forest Hill was trying out for volleyball at a school in Kingsville when she collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest. Her coach and the athletic director immediately began CPR; BCoFD EMS crews followed up with defibrillation using an automatic external defibrillator. Elise has recovered fully.

    She and other survivors of sudden cardiac arrest will join Baltimore County Fire and EMS personnel and elected officials tomorrow, Thursday, October 23, 11:30 a.m., at the Parkville Fire Station. Each year, the Fire Department welcomes survivors of sudden cardiac arrest and the people who helped save them in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of CPR and defibrillation.

    The Parkville station is located at 2325 Putty Hill Ave., 21234. County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Fire Chief John Hohman are scheduled to attend. The event will include a demonstration of CPR by EMS personnel.

At 4:10 p.m. Thursday afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Reisterstown Road and Kenmar Avenue in Owings Mills for a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Upon arriving at the scene, officers found an adult male that had been struck by a Nissan Altima.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the pedestrian was crossing the north-bound lanes of Reisterstown Road from the east side. A 2006 Nissan Altima was traveling north-bound on Reisterstown Road in a left turn lane. The pedestrian walked into the turn lane that the Altima was traveling in and was struck by the Altima.

The pedestrian was transported to Northwest Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. He has been identified as 58-year-old Joseph Michael Murphy of the Unit block of Winchester Avenue in Westminster.

This incident is being investigated by the Baltimore County Police Crash Team.

At 9:52 p.m. Thursday, BCoFD and BCoPD were dispatched to a townhome in the 5800 block of Ivy League Drive at 9:51 p.m. for a report of a dwelling fire.

When personnel arrived, they found the front porch of the home on fire. A second alarm was called by BCoFD commanders just after 10 p.m.. as the fire began spreading to adjacent units.

Two families were displaced by the fire. No civilian injuries reported. One volunteer firefighter was transported to St. Agnes Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.

About 22 pieces of fire equipment were dispatched to the scene.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is continuing.

A 58-year-old Owings Mills man has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography after a months-long investigation in which detectives found thousands of sexually explicit images of young children on his home computer and other electronic devices. 

David Michael Gaine, of the 9300 block of Fitzharding Lane, has been released on $125,000 bail. He turned himself in to the Towson precinct this morning. 

An investigation by BCoPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit began in November 2013 following a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Forensic examination of Gaine’s computers and electronic devices show that he possessed well over 5,000 images and videos containing child pornography. 

The images depict pubescent and prepubescent boys and girls, including babies and toddlers. The forensic examination of the computers also shows that Gaine participated in chat rooms with others interested in child pornography. 

The investigation remains open and ongoing. 

Gaine has been a Baltimore County employee for 11 years, working as an inspector for the Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspections. He has been suspended with pay since the investigation began; Baltimore County intends to terminate his employment now that he has been charged. 

The investigation has included an exhaustive examination of whether Gaine downloaded or viewed child pornography using county equipment or on county time. Detectives have found no evidence that this occurred.
