The Parkview at Collingswood apartment complex reported a resident death at its pool Wednesday night.
In an August 2 memo to residents, property manager John Marcoux expressed sympathies to the family of the deceased, identified at this time only as a male resident of the complex.
“We are absolutely devastated to hear of this loss,” Marcoux wrote.
“We join the rest of our community in extending our thoughts and condolences to the deceased resident and his family.”
According to Marcoux’s letter, the cause of death in the incident has not yet been determined, “however, natural causes are not being ruled out.”
Parkview spokespersons declined comment beyond the contents of the letter, which states that its lifeguards attempted to revive the victim, but couldn’t. The letter also notes that “the pool mechanics were inspected and everything was in working order.”
Collingswood Police did not immediately respond to requests for comment, and a spokesperson for the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said the matter is being handled locally.
Parkview at Collingswood, formerly the Heights at Collingswood, was purchased by Morgan Properties in October 2017.
