A mother intentionally drove her minivan with four children inside off a boat ramp into the Hudson River in Newburgh, N.Y. on Tuesday night, killing herself and three of her four children, the New York Times reported.
Lashandra Armstrong, 25, drove her four children Lashaun Armstrong, 10, Landon Pierce, 5, Lance Pierre, 2, and Lainaina Pierre, 11 months into the Hudson river after what was later reported to the police as a domestic dispute, Reuters reported
The lone survivor, a 10-year-old boy, who does not share the same father with the three other children, escaped the van through the driver's side window, swam ashore, and went to the Newburgh Fire Department where he informed the police of the incident, the New York Times reported.
The police found the car in 8 feet of water more than 25 feet from the shore after an hour-long search effort, Reuters reported.
Police are looking for the three children's father, Jean Pierre, for questioning, Reuters reported.
