Dead baby found floating near Brooklyn Bridge

08 August 2018

The body of a baby boy was recovered in New York City yesterday close to one of the city's most famous landmarks.

It wasn't immediately clear why the boy was in the water, but police say no parent or guardian was present and was suffering no obvious signs of trauma when he was spotted in the water.

"I was just looking out there looking".

"There was no pulse, no respiration", Campbell, a chiropractor, said.

A baby boy has died after being pulled from the water near South Street Seaport, police say.

A medical examiner is working to determine the cause of death.

A bystander plucked the baby - who was about 8 months old - from the water, but he could not be saved.

The baby's parents were not on scene.

"It's little head was under the water but his little legs were over", the Oklahoma tourist told CBS2. She said the baby was floating about 30 feet offshore. It was about 11 months old, 11 to.

Diana Campbell, of Stillwater, Oklahoma, first noticed the baby around 4 p.m. Sunday.

CBS New York says authorities took the child from the water and rushed him to a local hospital and was pronounced dead.

Police climbed over a safety railing to retrieve the baby, then brought him to a pedestrian walkway where they performed CPR, officials said. "It's just unreal, you don't come to the city expecting to see things like this, to see babies floating in the water".
