1. Various of scene, water, police
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Monte Campbell, Pulled Baby out of Water
"She (my wife) just called me over, said there's a baby in the water. I called 911, at that point I thought it was a doll. And 911 was, they put me on hold and I decided I had to go make sure and I handed the phone to her and got the baby."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Austin Campbell, Father Pulled Baby from Water
"And she screams 'hey, there's a baby down here,' and I was like 'what?' So we all went over there and there was a baby in the water so we all called 911 and while he was talking to the operator they're like 'don't jump in, don't jump in,' so he just jumps in the water, pulls the baby in starts performing CPR, and the ambulance pulled up three minutes after that and they took the baby with them."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Austin Campbell, Father Pulled Baby from Water
"You know, you don't ever hear anything… I knew going to New York there is a higher crime rate than there is in Stillwater and it's just unreal. You don't come to a city expecting to see things like this. You don't go anywhere expecting to see babies floating in the water."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Diana Campbell, Husband Pulled Baby from Water
"It's just awful. I mean, I don't know who could do that to a child, but I'm sure somebody's going to recognize something."
Authorities are investigating the death of a baby who was found floating in the water near the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday.
A family visiting from Stillwater, Oklahoma, spotted the approximately 8-month-old boy wearing only diapers in the shallow water near the Manhattan shoreline at about 4 p.m.
Chiropractor Monte Campbell said his wife, Diana Campbell, first noticed the baby.
"She just called me over and said there was a baby in the water. I called 911. At that point I thought it was a doll," Campbell said.
Campbell said he "walked out mid-thigh level" and retrieved the baby and started CPR. He said the baby had no respiration and showed no pulse.
Police officers arrived minutes later and brought the baby onto the pedestrian walkway where they continued CPR before the baby was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead, police said.
No parent or guardian was present at the scene and the child showed no signs of trauma, police said.
The medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death.
