Family of Scout Killed by Totem Pole Settles Lawsuit

In a tragic local incident last summer, a nine-year-old boy was killed at the Hidden Valley Boy Scout Camp in Perry County, PA by a falling totem pole.  The boy and other children were playing near the base of the pole, which was rotted and cracked when it was pushed.  The family reached a $1.38 million dollar settlement with two scouting organizations and an insurance company.  PennLive has the details.
