Mom Tries Drowning Her Kids By Driving Into Ocean

Another mother is accused of trying to drown her children, and the incident is captured on video. 

Witnesses in Daytona Beach, Florida say the pregnant woman drove her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean, while the children - aged 3,9, and 10 - screamed their mother was trying to kill them. 

Taylor Quintin, who was on a vacation from Vermont, says she saw the whole thing from her hotel balcony. 

"My friend pointed out that there was a car getting really close to the beach and actually started driving on the water... I saw a kid in the back waving his arms around screaming, 'Help us! Help us!' And the car kept going deeper."

Quintin tells our TV partner Local-2 she and three others ran to rescue the children, who were not hurt and are currently in state custody.

Their  mother is undergoing a mental health evaluation.
