A 26-year-old woman died after falling off of a walkway on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, according to the Long Beach Fire Department.

The woman somehow fell off an upper walkway, and landed 75 feet below into the frigid water about 8:30 p.m. Monday.

A man in his 40s jumped 15 feet off a lower walkway to help rescue the woman. He suffered hypothermia as a result.

Two Long Beach Police officers jumped in shortly after and brought them out of the water. The police officers did not suffer any injuries.

The woman was hospitalized in critical condition and later died as a result of the injuries.

As of now, investigators said the death appears accidental.
