Default Coroner IDs man who drowned in Winton Lake

A 23-year-old Forest Park man was identified Friday as the boater who died
in an apparent drowning at Winton Lake.

Caleb Simpson's body was found after a massive search and recovery effort
Thursday, according to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

Divers located him 12 feet underwater 30 feet away from Goose Island at
the lake.

They looked for Simpson for several hours after his canoe capsized about
dusk or dark, around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Another man also in his 20s who was in the canoe managed to swim to
safety, according to Springfield Township Fire Captain Jim Murphy.

"One swam toward an island here in the lake. When he turned around and got
on the island he didn't see his friend," Murphy said.

"He shouted for him and didn't see him and that's when it's presumed he
went under."

The men had been out on the water and at Goose Island fishing even though
it was closed due to high water from recent rains, Murphy said.

Winton Lake is 156-acres and 18 feet deep, county records show.

It's the second-largest body of water in Hamilton County after the Ohio
River, Murphy noted.

It was not clear Thursday why the men's canoe capsized.

ďThe lake is closed whenever itís flooded, which it is, and they are still
releasing water to get it down. Nobody is supposed to be out on the
water," he said.

Lt. Greg Grimm, a park ranger, said this is the first time something like
this has happened in his 24 years on the job.
