Baby boy dies after being found in river near Brooklyn Bridge

Baby boy dies after being found in river near Brooklyn Bridge”

Police believe the boy was less than a year old and said there were no visible signs of trauma.

Authorities say the body of a baby was found floating in the water near the Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan.

Police on Monday still didn't know how the baby, said to be about 8 months old, came to be in the water or where his parents or guardians are, the Associated Press reported. It is not yet clear how long the baby boy had been in the water, but Campbell noted there was a backpack floating in the water near the child. The family was taking in the view under the Brooklyn Bridge on the Manhattan side, CBS New York reports. He said the baby had no respiration and showed no pulse.

Police are investigating after a baby boy died shortly after being pulled from the water near South Street Seaport. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

The baby's parents were not on the scene. "I called 911. At that point, I thought it was a doll". She said the baby was floating about 30 feet offshore. So he handed the phone to his wife and waded into the water "to get the baby", he told the Times.

Campbell and the officers tried to revive the baby using CPR until an ambulance arrived and rushed him to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Lower Manhattan, where he was pronounced dead, police said. "Its little head was under the water, but his little legs were over", Diana Campbell said.
