The authorities continue to find evidence that can provide answers over the death of the eight-month-old baby boy found floating in the East River close to the Brooklyn Bridge.


Two tourists spotted the baby as they strolled around the area on August 5, 2018. A medical examiner will soon be providing information as to how the boy died, but it was already revealed that he showed no signs of trauma.

Police were also searching the area where the baby was found, in case there are other victims.

The case will remain unsolved if no information about the boy or his parents could be given soon, which is why the police have been asking for help from the public.

According to a report, the authorities want to know how long the baby was in the water before he was found on August 5. They also wanted to figure out why he was only wearing a diaper at the time.

A husband and wife from Stillwater, Oklahoma, Diana Campbell and Monte Campbell – a chiropractor – spotted the baby, who was floating and facing up.


Speaking with PIX11 News, Diana said she thought it was a doll.

Monte jumped over the railings of the port where they were standing and went towards the shoreline. He quickly pulled the baby away from the water and performed CPR.

At that point, Diana was calling 911, while Monte already knew that the baby wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse.


When help arrived, they also attempted to resuscitate the baby before he was immediately brought to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital Lower Manhattan.

The baby was soon pronounced dead at the medical facility.

Two backpacks were also seen floating near the baby, but it did not lead to any answer in figuring out where the boy came from and if he was indeed from New York City since the area where he was found is usually filled with tourists and locals alike.
