        The mother and three children are found dead after their van runs into the Hudson River

    New York (CNN) -- 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, some 60 miles north of New York City, authorities said.

    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.

    A police investigation into the incident suggests that the mother intentionally drove the vehicle into the water, according to Newburgh

    Prior to the incident, a relative called police reporting a "domestic disturbance," Ferrara said.

    Emergency responders said they could hear "tussling" in the background, according to Ferrara.

    An autopsy on the four bodies is scheduled for Wednesday.

    Newburgh Mayor Nicholas Valentine said the incident is certain to have "a lasting effect on this city."

  • Somehow I get the feeling it was intentional. Shame on un-responsible parents to do this kind of junk.

  • I'm sorry, but un-responsible (irresponsible?) is a very light word for what apparently happened.  This mother committed murder and suicide.  May the Lord Have Mercy Upon her Soul and the Souls of her innocent children.  What a horrendous, horrendous tragedy.

  • This is probably a case where there was already a serious domestic problem in the home.  Those poor poor people.  If only they could've gotten help,  if only they could've had the true Faith.... If only!!

    If your home is not already consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, waste no time in speaking to your priest about getting it done.  Also, if you are not currently in the habit of making the First Fridays and the First Saturdays, go here to read all of Our Lord's promises: http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/shj.htm

    One of the promises of Our Lord to those who make the First Fridays (receiving Holy Communion in reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus) is that He will bring peace to families.
    Let us pray for the poor poor families that don't have this tremendous gift of our Faith, and let us strive for a greater devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in reparation for the offenses committed against them and to pray for all those who are in such a painful need of what we have!
