Mom Drives Van with 3 Kids Into Hudson River

A 10 year-old boy escaped out of the window of a sinking minivan after his mother drove it with her three other children into the Hudson River, approximately 60 miles north of New York City, last night.

From CNN:

Lashawn Armstrong swam to shore Tuesday night and was picked up by a passer-by and brought to a nearby fire station in Newburgh, New York, said Fire Chief Michael Vatter.

Soaking wet and suffering from a mild case of hypothermia, Armstrong then told fire officials his mother had driven the vehicle into the river.

Police divers later discovered the bodies of Lashandra Armstrong, 25, an 11-month-old girl, a 2-year-old boy and a 5-year-old boy some 25 yards off shore.

    This woman had to have been more than just Distraught over a Fight with her Husband to do this. I agree with Dr. Drew— more like a Psychotic Episode. Still, those poor little Children who were trapped and forced to Drown, and how the surviving one will be affected in so many ways for the rest of his Life, is Heartbreaking.
