A pregnant woman had a ‘blank’ look on her face after driving her 3 children into the ocean in an attempt to kill them and herself.
This mom of three took extreme measures to try and take the lives of herself and her children by driving directly into an ocean in Daytona, Florida.
Mom Of 3 Drives Minivan Into Ocean
What a terrifying sight. A pregnant woman drove her minivan off the road, onto the beach, and directly into the ocean with her three small children in the back. The incident happened on Tuesday, March 4 in Daytona, Florida.
Rescuers claim that when they rushed to help the children out of the van, the kids were screaming for help and saying their mommy was trying to kill them.
One witness stated that when he tried to help the mother out of the front seat of the van, she wouldn’t move. She just sat there and stared blankly ahead without any concern. When two of the small children were pulled from the car they told the rescuers that there was also a baby in the car, which sent them back into the ocean to find the third child.
“She (the mother) wouldn’t say a word. She didn’t tell us nothing about a baby,” one witness told a local news reporter.

Local news reports that the children will be put into foster care once they are released from the hospital.
