Baby's body pulled from water near Brooklyn Bridge

Baby's body pulled from water near Brooklyn Bridge

Cops are investigating the 911 callers' claims, sources said.

The Campbells had just returned from a ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty with their two sons and a niece when they saw the child.

ABC7 in New York City reported that "waves" appeared to be pushing the body near the shore. There were no signs of trauma, and no sign of the child's parents in the area.

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.

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




The baby boy, thought to be about 8 months old, was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

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

Austin Campbell, who was visiting the area with his family, said his father jumped into the river with hopes of saving the young child.

Unsure if someone else had gone in with the baby, rescue crews continued to search the water Sunday night. He said the baby had no respiration and didn't show a pulse. She said the baby was floating about 30 feet offshore.
