Terry Forrestal, 52, a veteran British stuntman who appeared in Hollywood blockbusters such as "Titanic" and "Braveheart," died in a jumping accident in Norway on June 10, news reports said.

For 15 years, he was one of Europe's leading film stunt coordinators. His British credits include "The Full Monty," "Trainspotting" and "Elizabeth."

He died while parachuting from the 3,000-foot Kjerag cliff in Lysefjord, Norway.

Ray Scherer, 81, a former chief White House correspondent for NBC News and an RCA Corp. executive, died Saturday of cancer at his home in Washington.

He joined the network as a news writer in 1947 after working as a newspaper feature writer in his native Fort Wayne, Ind., and quickly became an on-air reporter. A pioneer television journalist, he was among the first to report live from the White House.
