An eight-month-old baby boy's lifeless body has been found floating in the water near New York's Brooklyn Bridge.
A family visiting from Oklahoma spotted the baby wearing only diapers in the shallow water near the Manhattan shoreline on Sunday at about 4pm.
Chiropractor Monte Campbell said his wife Diana Campbell first noticed the baby.
'She just called me over and said there was a baby in the water. I called 911. At that point I thought it was a doll,' Campbell said.
Campbell said he 'walked out mid-thigh level' and retrieved the baby and started CPR on the embankment.
He said the baby had no respiration and showed no pulse.
Police arrived just minutes later and brought the baby onto the pedestrian walkway where they continued CPR until EMS responded.
The baby was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police said no parent or guardian was present at the scene and the child showed no signs of trauma.
Authorities are investigating the death of a baby who was found floating in the water near the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday.
The medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death.
