Police say an autopsy will be conducted to determine whether a Bronx marina death was storm related.

The NYPD says the body of 68-year-old Jose Sierra was pulled out of the water around 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Locals believe the father of 13, who lives in Crotona Park East, fell in the water near his boat and drifted to the neighboring marina. Jose might be the only victim of Irene in New York City.

The body was at Sunset Marina, on City Island.
