Coney Island fatalities: 3 children dead after being found drowned unconscious on beach; Mother questioned by the police

CONEY ISLAND, BROOKLYN — Three children have died after being found unconscious on a beach on Brooklyn’s famous Coney Island boardwalk on Monday morning, and their mother is now being questioned by police.

According to the New York Police Department, a 30-year-old mother took her three children into the sea and drowned them near the boardwalk.

At 4:42 a.m., officers found a 7-year-old boy, a 4-year-old girl and a 3-month-old boy unconscious on the shore near West 35th Street.

The children were taken to Coney Island Hospital, where all three were pronounced dead.

Officers received an initial call around 1:40 a.m. from a concerned family member that someone may have injured three young children.

When officers arrived at the home on Neptune Avenue, a man posing as the father of the three children opened the door and told police he believed the mother was on the boardwalk with the children.

Police then began searching the promenade and surrounding area for signs of the mother or children.

That’s when they received a second call from family members who were with the mother on the boardwalk about two miles from where the children were found.

The mother was “soaking wet” and barefoot and did not want to communicate with officers, according to NYPD officials.

She was taken to the hospital for evaluation and is currently in the 60th Precinct where officers are questioning her.

Investigators are now questioning the mother in what is being investigated as a triple drowning.

Family members initially called 911 because the mother had made statements concerning the children’s safety.

The mother had previous incidents of molestation and aggravated molestation that have not resulted in charges. She has no prior arrests or a history of emotional disturbances.

She has not yet been charged.
