    Default Mom, 3 children die when van goes into Hudson River

    Fourth child, 10, was let out vehicle shortly before it went into the river; suicide suspected

    NEWBURGH, N.Y. — A woman who had just been involved in a domestic dispute loaded her four children into a minivan Tuesday night before letting one out and driving the rest of them into the Hudson River, firefighters said. The woman and three young children were killed.

    Do you post status updates about your relationship? Do you tag your friends in unflattering photos? If you answered “yes,” you could be putting your image in jeopardy. Amanda Wolfe, of Ladies’ Home Journal, shares advice for minding your p’s and q’s while connecting with people online.


    Newburgh city investigators said the mother may have been intent on suicide, the Hudson Valley Insider reported.

    The 10-year-old boy who had been let out of the minivan ran to a nearby fire station and alerted firefighters, Chief Michael Vatter said.

    The boy told firefighters his mother had driven off a boat ramp in Newburgh shortly before 8 p.m., about 60 miles north of New York City, and into the murky water of the river, Vatter said.

    Inside with her were the boy's siblings: two boys, ages 5 and 2, and an 11-month-old girl.

    Firefighters and police officers responded with boats. Divers searched for the minivan for about an hour before finding it submerged in 10 feet of water about 25 yards offshore. They used a heavy-duty tow truck to pull it up the boat ramp and onto land.

    Everyone inside was dead, Vatter said.

    The woman lived about six blocks from where she and her children perished, he said.

    Altercation 10 minutes before
    The domestic altercation occurred about 10 minutes before the woman drove into the river, said Vatter, who didn't have any more information on it.

    I would like to think there is a special place in hell (if it exists) for people that harm children.

    And not special in a good way.

    wtf?

    You know, maybe it's because I've recently turned 40, but I've noticed I've taken a new approach when I read stories like this. I used to just think what a crazy psycho to do something like that. Now, I wonder what the fuck had to snap in a person's brain for them to do something this ridiculous. Of course, I didn't know the woman and chances are she was crazy all along. But what if she wasn't?
    But to kill your children is crazy. She had a domestic dispute and this is her way of answering that dispute? Fucked up. I'm surprised one child was spared.

    I live close to this town. The woman didn't let the 10 year old out. After the van hit the water, he was able to bring down the passenger window by the electric switch, and swim out as it started sinking. He ended up at the firehouse nearby. No doubt the mother was trying to keep him in there. It was 45 degree water, and the kid could not speak due to mental shock and cold for a while after. But he was able to eventually tell what happened.
