Editor's Note: According to reports this morning, two of the children -- 5-year-old Zenavia Rennie and 7-year-old Alarious Coleman-Guerrido -- have died. The other three remain in critical condition.
Five children are being treated for serious injuries after being pulled from a car that plunged into an icy lake in Minnesota this morning. The kids were non-responsive by the time rescuers got to them, having been submerged in the near-freezing water for half an hour or more.
The driver, 23-year-old Marion Guerrido was able to escape when the Pontiac Grand Am hit the water, but she was unable to get the children out. A man who lives in a nearby apartment complex said, “I ran out to the balcony the second I heard the woman screaming. Even in the darkness, I could see a woman standing in water up to her knees. Looking back, everything about her screams told you she was the mother of a child in trouble.”
