(Daytona Beach, FL) -- The South Carolina woman who drove her van full of kids into the surf at Daytona Beach will face attempted murder charges. Lifeguards and eyewitnesses pulled Ebony Wilkerson and her three young children out of their sinking van Tuesday afternoon. Wilkerson denied she tried harming her children and said she was trying to drive out of the ocean. Sheriff Ben Johnson says that Wilkerson has been transferred from the hospital to the county jail. Her children remain under state care.
