To the editor:

Members of the Springfield Township Police and Fire [departments] would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Camden Cole who tragically lost his life on July 1 while swimming in Springfield Lake. Camden was obviously a very special young man and will surely be missed by many.

We would also like to thank the Springfield and surrounding communities for the outpouring of support for both the family and emergency workers during the incident. You all made us proud to serve in such a great community.

We would also like to remind everyone to be safe this summer and learn your limitations while swimming. Although our lake is very safe for all activities, extra caution is always needed around the water.

Again, thank you for your continuing support and please keep the family of Camden in your thoughts and prayers.

Springfield Township Police Department
