Police attended the scene in Hell’s Kitchen and EMS transported the victim to a local hospital, where officials said he was in a stable condition.

The popular pier is at the end of W44th Street next to the West Side Highway, between tourist attractions The Circle Line and Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. NYPD still had the pier taped off late morning as they conducted their investigation.

Eyewitness News broke the story this morning just after 7am, showing live footage from their news helicopter from the scene. Multiple NYPD vehicles can be seen in the area. They reported that police are searching for a group of men who ran east from the area along W44th Street. No arrests have been made at this time.

Pier 84 and the Manhattan Kayak Club will likely be closed for the remainder of the day as the investigation continues.

We will update this report as more information becomes available.
