Baby's body pulled from water near Brooklyn Bridge

A baby boy died after he was pulled from the water near the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday afternoon, an NYPD spokesperson said.

A family visiting from Stillwater, Oklahoma, spotted the boy, about eight months old, at about 4pm Sunday. The baby was clad only in a diaper. "911, they put me on hold and at that point I decided I had to go make sure".

The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police climbed over a safety railing to retrieve the baby, then brought him to a pedestrian walkway where they performed CPR, officials said.

Diana Campbell posted a news story about the incident on her Facebook, adding, "Asking for prayers for this attractive baby boy. someone out there knows what might have happen to him".

Police say the child was found laying on an embankment at the water's edge.

Police say no parent or guardian was at the scene. Campbell said that despite life-saving efforts, the infant had no pulse and was not breathing.

The Campbells, their two sons and a niece had just returned from a ferry trip to the Statue of Liberty and were sitting on a bench talking about where to get dinner when they saw the baby. A medical examiner will determine cause of death, the AP reported.

She took pictures and shot video at the scene and told the Times she hopes the images can help the police identify the baby.

The Campbell family left around 6 p.m., with Monte Campbell calling the experience "very emotional".
