A frightening incident was captured on video in Daytona Beach, Florida when a pregnant woman drove her minivan into the ocean with her three young children, aged 10, 9 and 3, inside.
Although authorities are still investigating how the incident happened, the most important thing is that the children are okay - which they are - thanks to some good samaritans!
After some witnesses saw the car get dangerously close to the beach off of the Atlantic Ocean, bystanders and a lifeguard jumped into the water to help out the mother and her children as it slowly rolled further out into the ocean.
An eyewitness said:
"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, like waving his arms around, like screaming, 'Help us! Help us!' and the car kept going deeper."
In the video (below), you can see rescuers holding the children while the mother escapes from the vehicle. Investigators said the woman was incoherent when they tried to speak with her afterwards.
The rescuers are literally life savers! And absolutely heroes!
Thank bob they were there to save the day! Otherwise who knows what might've happened?!
