A young Czech woman died on Sunday night after driving into a canal in Ireland, the Irish Independent reported. The woman, who was in her 20s, was trapped under water for more than an hour when the vehicle overturned in the canal, which is beside the River Boyne in County Meath. A passenger in the car managed to get out of the vehicle and raise the alarm, though emergency services, including divers, failed to save the driver, who has not been named.
