Mother dives minivan with kids into ocean

Ebony Wilkerson, accused of driving minivan with kids into the ocean, takes oath in Volusia County court in Florida

The mother of three (now pregnant with a fourth!) appeared in a Volusia County courtroom in Florida recently to face charges after driving her three screaming children into the ocean waves.

Charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder and child abuse with great harm, Wilkerson is currently in custody with her bail set at $1.2 million.
