– A South Carolina woman made waves Tuesday night when she inexplicably drove a minivan full of children
straight into the ocean near Daytona Beach. Lifeguards rushed to pull the unidentified woman and her three children — ages 10, 9 and 3 — from the water as the minivan began to take on water.
The incoherent woman and her soaked kids were taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons, but expected to survive. The shocking incident was captured by Canadian tourist Simon Besner, who documented the courageous lifeguards rushing into the water and plucking the four from the vehicle that appeared to be on the verge of being swept away into the deep blue. ”It was a bit terrifying,” Besner told WFTV. Investigators with the Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue are still trying to determine how the woman’s van took the dip into the ocean.
