A woman is undergoing a mental health evaluation after she drove her minivan into the ocean in Florida with her three children inside.

Officials say the woman was driving on Daytona Beach Thursday night, where cars are allowed, when all of a sudden she veered into the water.

Lifeguards and beachgoers jumped into action, pulling the kids out of the van as it filled with water.

A witness told a Florida TV news station that one of the kids was screaming that their mother was trying to kill them.

The children - ages 3, 9, and 10 - are now with child protective services.
