“UPDATE: @HobokenPD, @HobokenFire, @Hoboken_EMS, @NYPDnews Harbor Ptl, @uscoastguard, & HudReg Fire Marine responded to man who voluntarily entered the #HudsonRiver at 4:09,” the Hoboken Police Department tweeted at 5:39 p.m.

“Body recovered just after 5. Life saving efforts were unsuccessful. No more info until family is notified.”

As of 7:30 p.m., law enforcement sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, indicated that the next of kin had still not been notified.

A prior tweet from the Hoboken PD indicated that police and firefighters were on the scene near Pier C with the NYPD Harbor Patrol and the U.S. Coast Guard after reports of a man jumping in the Hudson River.

This is a developing story that will be updated when more details are released.

  1. That was my son Talib DeAndre Grant
    He was 24 years old
    He was heavily medicated
    He was just released from the hospital from the psych ward.
    Coroner said he should not have been released if he was suicidal

  2. Why does Ferrante HATE life saving rings on the waterfront?
    Not like he wants to jump in to save a life… Just ask that kid who died in 2005
