Police report: Mom blamed husband for abuse after she drove kids into ocean off Florida beach

A new police report says the first thing a pregnant South Carolina woman said after driving a minivan carrying her three young children into the ocean surf off Florida was that she was abused by her husband.

The report released Monday says a Daytona Beach safety officer asked 32-year-old Ebony Wilkerson if she was injured after she swerved the car into the ocean last week. Wilkerson responded with the abuse allegation.

Wilkerson was jailed, with bail set at $1.2 million. She faces three counts of attempted murder and three counts of child abuse.

Bystanders and officers helped pull her and her children — ages 3, 9 and 10 — from their minivan as it was almost submerged.

One of the children told another officer that their mother was "sleepwalking."
