A teenager ran into difficulty in the water at Hopeville Pond State Park today, and died.  Brandon Jozile was from Norwich.

State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection spokesperson Cyndy Chanaca says the teen was found early this afternoon.

“A sixteen year-old male was pulled from the water at Hopeville Pond State Park in Griswold,” Chanaca said.  “He was taken to Backus Hospital’s emergency room… By way of ambulance.”

He was unconscious when he was found.  Authorities say he could not swim.

The pond has a swimming area.  Boating and fishing are also allowed there.
