Woman allegedly throws infant sons into river

Recommended Posts

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) -- A woman allegedly threw her twin infant sons into the Mississippi River, then jumped in herself, screaming incoherently as she fell, police said.


Several people waiting at the river's edge Friday for July Fourth fireworks to start leapt in after them. A man rescued one of the 11-month-old boys, then pulled the mother to safety with the help of others.


By then, the second boy had disappeared, said Police Cmdr. Brian Coyle.


The 24-year-old woman, Naomi Gaines, and the rescued boy were expected to make a full recovery. By late Saturday, the other child was still missing and presumed drowned, Coyle said.


Divers could not be sent into the river to assist in the search because of a swift current.


Coyle said Gaines, who has no criminal record, was to remain hospitalized under observation at least through Sunday. She could be charged as early as Monday.


Coyle said the unidentified man who led the rescue of Gaines and her son put himself in harm's way by swimming out into the powerful current.


"It was heroic," Coyle said. "I'm impressed that a citizen would jump into the river and do what he did."


Witnesses said the woman kept screaming and resisted rescue.


"We were just sitting there, and we heard her screaming," said Erin Mac, who was among thousands of people on the river's edge. "She just kept screaming these bloodcurdling screams."
