Our heart and prayers go out to his family, fellow Scouts and leaders. I don't mean this to sound cold, but it might be some comfort to those who knew him, he died doing what he enjoyed.

MT. PLEASANT, Sanpete County A 14-year-old Boy Scout died Tuesday night after he was run over by a truck and trailer collecting garbage at a Scout camp.

Bruce Rhiddlehoover, who was known as Rocky, was performing a nightly duty of going around Tifie Scout Camp at Mountain Dell Scout Ranch and picking up trash when he fell under a trailer about 8 p.m., said Utah National Parks Council Scout Executive David Pack.

"He slipped and fell underneath the tires of the trailer that was carrying the trash," he said.

Pack was with the boys' parents Tuesday night when they were informed of the tragedy. He said their LDS ward in Cedar Hills is providing support and the family's bishop and Relief Society president were with them Tuesday night. The Scout has several brothers and sisters who live outside of Utah who were expected to be notified of the incident Wednesday.
