James Currie, 37, was brought back to New York and will be charged with concealment of a human corpse after allegedly dumping his 7-month-old son Mason Saldana Sunday, WNBC reported. Currie could face additional charges based on autopsy results.

Mason, who was born in January, was alive when his mother gave the boy to his father around 12:30 p.m. Saturday as part of the couple’s court-stipulated visitation agreement, WNBC reported.

About 24 hours later, the child was likely dead when Currie was seen in surveillance video wearing a backpack fashioned as a baby carrier, covered with a blanket, WNBC reported.

The boy was found by tourists around 4 p.m. floating in the water with a backpack nearby.
