The story of mom driving van into the river... One of the kids got out and survived.

At least there is a little good news in a horrible story.

  • I don't know how good though, that poor boy now has to continue living with no mother, no siblings, and possibly the regret of "i should've saved my brother/sister." He's not going to have a "good" life by any means.

  • He will have to live with the fact he is the only survivor but he will live.

  • I also worry about the "good" his life will be from now on. I hope he has other family that is willing to help him through this. His mother is a selfish woman.

  • I haven't read the story, but heard some of it on this news this morning. All I can think is the pain and suffering this boy will have the rest of his life. The reminder of seeing it happen. The nightmares. I am not saying it's a bad think he survived...just saying he'll have a lot of trauma for awhile, if not forever. Some people are so freaking selfish!!!!!!! I think I am going to read the story now.

  • Ok, so I just read the article. Those babies (11 month, 2 & 5) NEVER had a chance since they were probably in carseats.

    I can't even imagine~!

    My heart breaks for them and any remaining relatives.

  • I just pray someone in the family will care for the little boy, and get him all the help he needs to get through this. He has a long hard road ahead of him.... There is nothing good about this story at all.

  • That makes me sick to my stomach! I just will never understand how Mother's could do that to her kids.

  • That's no good news. He's going to live with that horror for the rest of his life. I highly doubt he'll ever be glad he made it out alive.
