DAYTONA BEACH, FL. - A pregnant woman has been hospitalized after she tried to drive her minivan into the ocean.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Witnesses say the woman, along with her 3, 9 and 10 year-old were rescued by people on the beach.

One witness says one of the children was screaming that their mom was trying to kill them.

It is possible that the woman had a medical emergency causing her to lose control of the vehicle and end up in the water.

The woman, who isn't talking to investigators, is currently undergoing a mental evaluation.

The children will likely be turned over to a relative in Orlando.
