Campbell said he "walked out mid-thigh level" in the East River and retrieved the baby and started CPR. The baby was wearing only a diaper as it bobbed face-up in the water.

The body of a baby boy was recovered in New York City yesterday close to one of the city's most famous landmarks.

Diana Campbell initially spotted the infant floating by a pile of debris about 30 feet offshore, prompting her husband, Monte, to recover the body from the water's edge.

Authorities said he showed no signs of trauma. The cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner.

Chiropractor Monte Campbell said his wife, Diana Campbell, first noticed the baby.

Mrs Campbell said she took photos of him in the hope that they would help to find his parents.
