Paramedics found the baby in the river on Thursday afternoon.
The circumstances around the infant’s death are not yet known.
Netcare 911’s Shawn Herbst said: “Reports from the scene had alleged that a one-day-old male had be been washed down the river and got caught in a net of rubbish floating in a river. The patient was assessed on scene by a Netcare practitioner and found to not have a pulse and was declared dead on the scene.”
Also on Thursday, the body of a three-year-old child was found in a rubbish bin in Orange Farm.
The little girl had been stabbed to death and dumped there.
