Pregnant Mother Drives Van Into Ocean With Her Children Inside

Daytona Beach Lifeguards rushed to save three children, after their pregnant mother, Ebony Wilkerson, 32, drove her Honda Odyssey into the ocean. Onlookers captured the horrific event on video as the van started to sink into the ocean.

Once lifeguards managed to get Wilkerson out, onlookers said that the mother simply walked away, unconcerned about her children, ages 3, 9 and 10. Canadian tourist Simon Besner captured the intense rescue as the lifeguards pulled out everyone in the van, minutes before the vehicle was swept away into the ocean.

Police spoke to Wilkerson a few hours before this event after Wilkerson’s sister called them, concerned about her sister’s actions. The police pulled over Wilkerson as she was driving with her kids and let her go after questioning her, since no one in the car seemed distressed.

The three children were taken to the hospital and are okay. They are now in state custody and the Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue are investigating why the mother decided to drive her van into the ocean.
