"That's when I spotted the baby". An eyewitness said the baby was only wearing diapers.

"I spotted the baby. his little head was under the water. his little legs were over", Diana told CBS New York. Tourists from Oklahoma discovered the child lying unconscious and unresponsive near the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge at around 4 p.m., according to police. "It just doesn't seem real.it's just, I don't know, I didn't expect this when I came here", Austin Campbell said.

Campbell said he "walked out mid-thigh level" in the East River and retrieved the baby and started CPR. There was no respiration nor pulse. An officer climbed a safety railing and brought the boy onto a walkway, where police attempted CPR as they waited for EMS to respond to the scene. Investigators also pulled a backpack found floating nearby from the river, the station adds. A medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death.

The location near the South Street Seaport on the heavily-trafficked East River, a tidal estuary subject to strong currents, divides Manhattan from Brooklyn.

Police say it wasn't immediately clear why the child was in the water, and no parent or guardian was present. Both park-lined shorelines are usually teeming with tourists this time of year.
