Two people died and at least 10 others suffered injuries after a boat capsized in the Hudson River Tuesday afternoon and prompted a multi-agency response.
The boat capsized in the Hudson River near Pier 84 in Midtown Manhattan just after 2:45 p.m. The NYPD and FDNY responded to 911 calls of people drowning.
Two people were rescued by police and fire department units, while other agencies rescued the remaining passengers.
A 7-year-old boy was taken to Bellevue Hospital and a 50-year-old woman was taken to Roosevelt Hospital, police said. Police said both were later pronounced dead.
Another person was said to have serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The others suffered minor injuries.
The investigation is being handled by the Midtown North detective squad.
