A 10-year-old boy, Lashaun Armstrong, was the only survivor after his mother, Lashanda Armstrong, intentionally drove their minivan into the Hudson River, killing three of her children, ages 5, 2 and 11 months old.

Lashaun Armstrong managed to roll down the window and swim out of the van after the crash, hitching a ride from a passerby to the nearest firestation.
Rescue workers used a tow vehicle to remove the submerged vehicle from the water. In the hour before the crash, police had been called to a domestic dispute at Armstrong's home with the father of the three children who were killed.
