Tourists from Oklahoma made the disturbing discovery and waved police down around 4 p.m. Sunday.

Her husband, Monte Campbell, who is a chiropractor, told the Times he called 911 and that when he was put on hold he decided to make sure it was a real baby and not a doll.

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

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

The New York City Fire Department reportedly took the child to the hospital where the baby died. Investigators also pulled a backpack found floating nearby from the river, the station adds.

Mr Trump also tweeted about the fires in California, which have destroyed dozens of homes and killed at least seven people. Trump called the reporting a " complete fabrication ".


Police say the child was found laying on an embankment at the water's edge. "I called 911. At that point I thought it was a doll", Campbell said.

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. He said the baby had no respiration and showed no pulse.

No parent or guardian was present at the scene and the child showed no signs of trauma, police said.

Diana Campbell called for her husband and sons.

A baby boy has died after being pulled from the water near South Street Seaport, police say. A medical examiner will determine cause of death, the AP reported. Both park-lined shorelines are usually teaming with tourists this time of year.
