Two dead bodies were discovered floating in New York City waterways Saturday, one in Ambrose Channel and another in the Harlem River.
At roughly 3:20 p.m. yesterday, the NYPD Harbor Unit received a call about a person in the water in Ambrose Channel, off the shoreline of south Brooklyn near Bensonhurst. Police sought out and found the body of an unconscious and unresponsive man. He was rushed to Kingsborough College Pier and treated by EMS workers, but could not be saved. No arrests have been made in connection with the man's death, but an investigation is ongoing and an NYC Medical Examiner is working to determine the exact cause of death.
Several hours later, the NYPD received another call of a person in the water, this time in the Harlem River just before midnight. Harbor Units found an unresponsive, unconscious woman floating near the intersection of 225th Street and Adrian Avenue. Police rushed her to the Peter Jay Sharp Boat House where she was given medical attention, but EMS workers pronounced her dead at the scene. Her death is being investigated and no arrests have been made.
