Body pulled from the river at Pier 26

The NYPD pulled a body from the Hudson this morning at 10:20 a.m. at Pier 26. Police report that officers discovered an unidentified male unconscious and unresponsive. EMS responded and pronounced him deceased on the scene. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death and the investigation is active and ongoing. (Mary Habstritt sent the photo.)

Last Tuesday, a 68-year-old man jumped from Pier 45 in the Village and his body was not found that night. It is my guess these are connected, but police did not say.
