A body was recovered from the water near Bay Eighth Street just off the Belt Parkway in Bath Beach early Friday morning, according to authorities.
Cops say that, at around 8:47 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a male in the water near the area, within the confines of the 62nd Precinct.
Upon arrival, officers observed the man — unconscious and unresponsive — at which point NYPD Harbor personnel removed him from the water and Emergency Medical Services pronounced him dead.
The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
The investigation is ongoing.
