Baby's body pulled from water near Brooklyn Bridge

Baby's body pulled from water near Brooklyn Bridge

The body was spotted in the water of the East River under the Brooklyn Bridge by a family who had travelled from Oklahoma to NY for a holiday.

The cause of death is unclear, and his body showed no signs of trauma.

No parent or guardian was present at the scene, police said. Her husband, Monte Campbell, waded into shallow water near the Manhattan shoreline, retrieved the baby and started CPR.

"My mom, she was out here and she was kind of just looking in the water, and she calls my dad over and says 'there's a baby in the water!'" Austin told ABC 7 in NY.

Austin's mom, Diane, was the first to spot the baby in the water shortly after 4 p.m. He was pulled from the water by a tourist visiting from Oklahoma.

"You could see its little legs just floating and his head was in the water", Diana Campbell said.

It was just after 4 p.m. on a hot, sunny Sunday in NY when cops "climbed over a safety railing and picked up the infant, then brought him to the pedestrian walkway".

"That's when I spotted the baby".

Diana Campbell took video and photos of the scene, hoping the images would be helpful in identifying the infant.

"Someone knows that child", she told the Times.

The New York City Fire Department reportedly took the child to the hospital where the baby died.

He and police officers called to the scene gave the baby CPR until an ambulance arrived, NY media reported.
