Stacy Robinson, a sophomore at Seminole State College in Sanford, Fla., said he and his girlfriend were sitting in their car at the beach in Daytona Beach, Fla., when they saw a woman, who police have identified as Ebony Wilkerson, 32, from Cross, S.C., driving a minivan partly in the rough surf.

"[My girlfriend] said what I thought was a joke and [I] was like, 'No, this is real', because after that her son came out the window, probably about waist high, screaming for help," Robinson said.

why is no one talking about the fact that her sister tried to warn everyone about her mental health and tried to stop her from driving

Everyone is saying HER mental health, HER HER HER. I get if she was depressed and suicidal but there was no reason for her to drag her kids with her. Those kids were fine and happy.

I will never understand why people when they commit suicide take their children with them.

I love how everyone is sitting here saying that she doesnt deserve to get punished for this because shes mentally I'll. Do you think that people who shot up schools and attempted to kill people were in a good state of mind? No. They weren't. Yet they ALL get the punishment they deserve. Being mentally ill is NOT an excuse for your or other peoples actions. She deserves to be in jail and out of society because she is a danger to herself and her children and to everyone around her. I hope if she did go to jail she gets professional help.

Did the woman in the car just say to him “You sit still?” at 0:43?? I hope she was talking to another person and not him. If she was talking to him, I’m glad he didn’t listen to her and went to save the children.
