Louis C.K. Found A Dead Body Floating In NYC's East River

Aly Weisman

Louis C.K. was going for a joy ride in his new boat this summer when all of a sudden the comedian came upon a dead body, or "floater," as he later learned it was called.

"I got a boat and I was floating around lower Manhattan and up the East Side and you have a radio on the whole time, it's an open channel. So the coast guard comes on and says 'please be aware there's report of a body in the water south of the Queensboro Bridge,' which is where I was," the comedian told David Letterman while appearing on the "Late Show" this week. "And as soon as I heard it I looked down and there was the dude in the water."

"I called the coastguard and I said 'I got the dead guy right here!' Louis explained, adding "I'd never seen a dead guy. It was creepy and weird and I felt embarrassed for him a little bit."

But then the comedian got serious, saying "I thought about it and this was a person, this was a life, a story, and he's just a floater now. I felt all kinds of things."

Watch below to see if Louis took a photo of the dead body:
