On a Queen Mary ocean liner in Long Beach Harbor, a woman fell 75 feet to her death, according to The Associated Press. She reportedly fell after she climbed to the upper-deck railing of the ship.
After the woman dropped into the freezing waters, her 40-year-old boyfriend, a ship employee and two police officers jumped in the water to rescue her. The woman, reportedly 26-years-old, arrived in the hospital in critical condition and later died.
The boyfriend was taken to the hospital and treated for hypothermia. The ship employee and two police officers were treated at the scene, reported KTLA.
Her name has not been released pending notification of her family, according to the LA Times.
Long Beach police spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said the woman appeared drunk. Witnesses said the woman may have been arguing with her boyfriend shortly before her fall and may have threatened to jump, reported KTLA.
However, the police told The Associated Press that the boyfriend may have been just yelling loudly for her to get off the railing. The woman and her boyfriend were leaving the docked ship after visiting a bar on there, according to Reuters.
So far, the police are treating the death as an accident.
We send our sincere condolences to the woman's family regarding this very sad tragedy,” said Queen Mary's task force general manager, Greg Keebler, in a statement.
