National Post reported that a Coast Guard helicopter from Detroit arrived at 1:30 p.m., an hour after the call was made. The driver, a woman who was in her 60’s, was removed from the vehicle but pronounced dead on the scene. Her cause for death hasn’t been officially known.

Niagara Falls State Park Operations Team is trying to figure out how to get the car out of the water, a media advisory stated this afternoon.

And while it’s not known how the car got in there, it appeared to be through “an intentional act,” the advisory said.

It adds that the woman’s identity has yet to be confirmed through the medical examiner or coroner’s office.
