The article reports that a mother threw her 2 kids aged 8 and 6 and herself off a highway overpass and all three survived.<br><br><a href="http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D8VC1OO82&show_article=1" target="_blank">http://www.breitbart.com/article.php...show_article=1</a>

Eeek, I am sure they'll have some severe emotional issues for a very long time. I just cannot imagine.

To be quite honest, if they had not survived, I would not have posted it. I think it is nothing short of a miracle that they lived.

I sure hope that dad is better quality then mom and can hopefully make up for some of that. I know he can't, but I can't find the words to phrase it better. Poor little guys <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

This breaks my heart, can you imagine how scared these little boys were? Can you imagine being someone going down the freeway and seeing this? Wow. Its just horrible.

I was okay with reading the story because I knew that they all survived. The women is most likely suffering from some sort of mental disturbance, I'd imagine. God was watching over those children, that's for sure. I hope the woman gets the help that she needs and the children are kept safe.

Hmmm. Really bizarre story. Dad was paying for gas and she grabbed them and threw them off a bridge?<br><br>
I'm just glad the kids are okay. How terrifying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Exactly, this was in my area and I was praying for this family this morning. I was so disheartened and sad by it and although I haven't gone and read the article, I am so thankful that they are alive.

Even if she does have issues she could have dealt with them herself why take the kids out with her. They struggled to get away from her, how terrifying I don't see how they will be able to get past this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Maybe, just maybe, she thought they'd survive and it was the only way to get away from the husband who was maybe abusive, maybe chasing them? Speculation, kinda hopeful she is innocent of trying to kill her kids.

I want to pick up those boys and hug them! To have your mother try to kill you like that? Surviving and having to live, knowing what she tried to do almost seems more painful than death. That said, I am so glad they survived.<br><br>
I also wonder about the mom. She obviously wasn't getting the help she needed. What is wrong with the world, anyway?
