    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: Police have identified the male found near train tracks in the Rosedale area as 26-year-old George Thomas McAleer of the 1100 block of Quantril Way in Baltimore.

Original Release:

The Baltimore County Police Department is currently investigating the death of a male victim found near train tracks in the Rosdedale area.

On March 4, at approximately 5:48 p.m., Baltimore County Police were dispatched to the 200-block of Philadelphia Avenue, 21236 for an injured subject. The police investigation revealed that an unidentified adult male victim was standing in the area of the train tracks, when he was accidentally struck by a train that was passing by. It appears that the subject did not hear the train coming down the track at a high rate of speed. The police investigation also revealed that the victim was in possession of a stolen 4-wheel ATV that broke down on him next to the tracks just prior to the accident. 
 
The victim, believed to be from the Dundalk area, was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim is not being identified at this time pending the notification of the next of kin.
This accident highlights the danger of people trespassing upon railroad property. Citizens are being asked to stay away from all railway property in Baltimore County.
 
Train traffic through the area was interrupted and is now operating at restricted speeds through the area.
 
No additional information is available at this time.

Police have identified the victim struck by an Amtrak train this afternoon in Precinct 11/Essex as Kenneth Joseph Grabenstein, 55, of Delaware.

BCoPD officers responded at 11:12 a.m. to the railroad tracks along Orems Road near Entrance Road, where they found the victim dead on the scene. Witnesses, including the train engineer, said they saw the victim standing in the middle of the tracks, facing the train as it approached. The engineer said he was unable to stop the train, which was traveling at 135 mph. Police say the incident may have been a suicide.

Amtrak Police will handle any additional investigation of this incident.
