LONG BEACH (CBS) — A 26-year-old woman died after falling from the Queen Mary Tuesday night.

The woman plummeted 75 feet into the water from a third-story railing around 8:30 p.m., according to the Long Beach Fire Department.

A man who dove 15 feet into the water to save her was hospitalized with hypothermia and minor injuries.

A Long Beach police officer and a Queen Mary staff member also jumped in the water to try and save her.

They were able to pull her out of a narrow channel between the side of the ship and the pier.

She was then taken to a Long Beach hospital, where she later died.

No further details were immediately released.
