Police say at 4:30 on Sunday morning a car with six people inside lost control and flipped into three feet of water right off Jamaica Bay.

First responders responded to Brookville Boulevard to pull out four people from the car, but one woman, 25-year-old Domonique Jamison from Queens, later died.

Since this morning, police identified the driver as 32-year-old Denise Finley. She was taken in to custody and charged with a DWI and driving without a license.

Six firefighters had to be treated for hypothermia after their rescues.
