Boy Scout is honored for pool rescue of cousin


ESSEX -- Fred Hettling III, a Life Scout in Troop 745 at Essex United Methodist Church, recently received a national heroism award from the Boy Scouts of America for saving the life of a young cousin he found floating in a swimming pool.

Hettling, now a freshman at Archbishop Curley High School, spotted his 4-year-old cousin floating below the surface in an in-ground swimming pool in May 1995.

He dived into the water and returned the girl to the side of the pool, where she recovered.

A Columbia man died yesterday after the unlicensed all-terrain vehicle he was operating on a Southwest Baltimore street struck the front of a dump truck, police said.

Curt Arthur Seiler, 23, of the 8600 block of Hayshed Lane died of multiple injuries at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said.

Police said Seiler was operating a four-wheel ATV north in the 600 block of S. Bentalou St. about 1: 45 p.m. when he ignored a stop sign at Wilkens Avenue.

The ATV -- which is banned on Baltimore streets -- struck the front wheel of the truck owned by Waste Management of Maryland-Baltimore.

Bribery trial postponed for former police officer

The federal trial for a former Baltimore police officer charged with bribery in an alleged scheme to protect a convicted drug dealer has been postponed until Sept. 25 while his lawyer sorts through hours of secretly recorded Police Department tapes.

Jack Rubin, the lawyer representing Erick McCrary, who resigned from the force after he was arrested in March, said the delay also is because of scheduling conflicts between the U.S. District Court judge and prosecutors assigned to the case.

Meanwhile, McCrary has been moved to a halfway house until he awaits trial. Rubin said his client is being held under electronic monitoring and is allowed to make trips to his lawyer's downtown office.
