A mother was charged Wednesday with trying to kill her three teenage children by driving into the Delaware River, the Burlington County Prosecutor and Florence Township Police announced.
The car was nose down into the water. I heard screaming, says Darnell Taylor.
Taylor was driving by when he saw what was happening and jumped in to help the three teenagers ages 13, 14 and 15 and their mother to safety.
The car was going under fast. Once the back window got kicked out, the water started coming in through the window and it was filling up even more, Taylor said.
Crime tape marks where police say 49-year-old Joann Smith drove her van off West Front Street at full speed into the river around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Screaming like I said and banging on the windows. I swam out to the car. The van, and I told the young girl to kick the window out. She kicked it and kept kicking it and finally it bust open. She jumped into my arms. I swam her to shore and swam back and got her brothers and her mother, Taylor said.
Joann Smith is now undergoing an evaluation at a facility close by.

Not much detail in the story. How do they know it’s not a traffic accident?
Oh dear. Didn’t ‘Julia’ get the message about how wonderful single motherhood is?
What kind of evil man could have driven her to do this?
Maybe she just heard Hillary was going to run for president?
Thank God that Mr. Taylor was there and did what he did to save those children.
He’s a hero in my eyes.
The mother is apparently either mentally ill, or evil.
Any “mother” who kills (or attempts to kill) her children is “without natural affection”.
The preponderance of stories like this lead me to believe we are, in fact, in the last days:
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION!
Hope they find out why the mom did itand help the mom.
“It wasn’t my fault. There was all these traffic cones. I was just following the traffic cones and, boom...next thing I know, the car’s in the water.”
He is a hero, God knew who to send in that day.
From the article, “She was there getting ice cream moments before...”
So, she gets the kids ice cream and then tries to drown them?! Here is a waffle cone before we all die? Sick, sick woman. I pray for those kids.. their life even before this must have been awful. I hope there is family to take them in and love them through all of this. So sad.
He did not do “what anybody else would have done.”
For those obsessed with race, a black man rescued a white family from drowning bringing each to shore and then going back to the van for another.
I would of done it, I have done it, any normal person would of.
