Fire Department: Man injures hip crossing river at campsite

CAMDEN TWP. — One 62-year-old man suffered a hip injury while crossing a river at Common Ground campsite.

The Camden Township Fire Department responded to a call from the site, 14240 Baird Road, at 10:31 a.m.

The man had been walking across a tree to cross the river and fell on another tree, located below. The fire department said the tree is often used to cross the river, and children often wade through the water.

The man’s name was not available. He was taken by EMS to Mercy Allen Hospital.
