A baby boy was pronounced dead on Sunday after tourists found him floating in New York's East River wearing only a diaper, police said.

A family visiting from Stillwater, Oklahoma, spotted the boy, about eight months old, at about 4pm Sunday. It is not yet clear how long the baby boy had been in the water, but police said there was a backpack floating in the water near the child.

"My mom, she was out here and she was kind of just looking in the water, and she calls my dad over and says 'there's a baby in the water!'" Austin told ABC 7 in NY.

"I spotted the baby. his little head was under the water. his little legs were over", Diana told CBS New York. Police believe the boy was less than a year old.

Diana Campbell took video and photos of the scene, hoping the images would be helpful in identifying the infant. The boy was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police arrived on the scene minutes later and brought the baby onto a pedestrian walkway and continued CPR. "It's just unreal, you don't come to the city expecting to see things like this, to see babies floating in the water".
