Emergency responders dived into the chilly water to rescue the passengers, who were tightly harnessed in and had to be cut out, Daniel A. Nigro, the commissioner of the New York Fire Department, said at a news conference.

Two people were declared dead at the scene, and three others were taken to hospitals in critical condition, he said. Emergency responders were performing CPR on them as they were placed into ambulances.
