NEWBURGH — A mother drove her minivan and three children into the Hudson River on Tuesday evening.

All four drowned, according to police.

The victims are the mother, two boys, ages 5 and 2; and an 11-month-old girl.

Police believe that the mother let a fourth child, a 10-year-old boy, out of the car shortly before the incident.

The boy ran up the hill to a fire station and told firefighters his mother had just driven into the river with his siblings, police said.

City of Newburgh police divers found the minivan submerged in the water.
It was located just south of Gully’s Restaurant on Washington Place near the end of a boat ramp.

The occupants were already dead by the time the divers arrived.

Police used a tow truck to pull the minivan out of the river around 9 p.m.

A state police helicopter was used to search the river, and the City of Newburgh’s fire department boat was also used in the hopes that somebody could be rescued.
“It’s a horrible sight, all of them in the car,” said City of Newburgh Police Chief Michael Ferrara.

Ferrara said it appears that the incident was related to a domestic call from earlier that evening.

Police responded to a report of a domestic dispute about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday at 53 William St., Apt. 2.

When officers arrived at the address, however, there was no one at the residence.
But minutes later, the 10-year-old showed up at the fire station.

Police have not released any names.

The parking lot at Gully’s Restaurant has been closed off with police tape while officials investigate.

 They are now saying that the 10 year old opened the power window and got out. Guess that's why the van sunk.

Really? They had said the mom stopped and let him out. That poor kid, I can't imagine how he feels- either way it actually happened so that he survived. :(
