    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.

UPDATE (October 2):

The man who was injured yesterday in a construction accident in Sparks has died.

Michael Ray Mathews (64) of Freeland was operating a mini-steamroller, flattening out a dirt pile when part of the dirt pile collapsed. This caused the mini-steamroller to roll over, trapping Mathews. Another worker at the site used a bobcat to lift the mini-steamroller up so that Mathews could be removed from under it. Mathews was taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center where he later died.

An investigator with Maryland Occupational Safety and Health responded to the scene and began an investigation.

Original release (October 1):

At 2:08 p.m. this afternoon, Baltimore County Fire and Police personnel responded to the 600 Block of Belfast Rd 21152 for a report of an entrapment.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that an adult male was operating a mini-steamroller, flattening a pile of dirt. Part of the dirt pile collapsed causing the mini-steamroller to roll over. The operator became trapped under the mini-steamroller but was later extricated.

The operator was taken to an area hospital where his current condition is unknown.

Police are still on the scene. Maryland Occupational Safety and Health was notified.

At 12:39 p.m. this afternoon, police received information that there may be a subject with a weapon in the area of Loch Raven High School. The school went on alert status while police searched the area around the school.

Police did not find anything during their search. They will remain in the area while Loch Raven High School and nearby Lutheran High School dismisses students.

An alert status at a school is less serious than a lock down. When a school is on alert status, activity inside the school continues as normal. However; no one is permitted to enter or exit the building.

At 1:58 p.m. Saturday afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Old York Road and Lentz Road in Parkton for a serious automobile accident.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling east-bound on Old York Road approaching Lentz Road. It struck the rear of a Ford Escort that had stopped on east-bound Old York Road to make a left turn. The motorcycle then traveled onto west-bound Old York Road and was struck by a Honda CRV.

The operator of the motorcycle was declared deceased at the scene. He has been identified as 51-year-old Joseph Zutell, Jr. of Seven Valleys Pennsylvania.

There were no other injuries reported.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Crash Team.
