Lashanda Armstrong, who drowned herself & 3 kids in Hudson River, posted apology on Facebook
Michele L. Bullock
This article describes the story of Lashanda Armstrong, a woman who drowned herself and her three children in the Hudson River. Lashanda actually posted on Facebook that she was about to do something horrible 30 minutes before she drove herself and her four children into the water in their van in Newburgh. There is no notation of whether someone saw the post on Facebook quickly.
Lashanda picked her children up four hours early from daycare but stated that her work hours changed and nothing seemed wrong at the time according to the daycare providers, although at first it seemed a little strange. Apparently they accepted her explanation, as anyone would if she seemed fine. Also, the daycare knew that she had trouble with the children’s father.
One of the four children, 10 year-old Lashaun, escaped through a window after the car started sinking, but he was the only one that got out. It is unclear why, but he feels guilty that he did not at least get out his 11 month-old sister. A 31 year-old woman driving by saw and helped Lashaun, and said that she will be haunted forever by the look on his face. I can’t imagine how she will feel even though she probably couldn’t do anything to save any of the others. She may have some depression as well.
Lashanda had a fight with her longtime boyfriend, and that is what allegedly led to the incident. What a shame that this woman, mad at a cheating boyfriend, chose to murder her children and commit suicide instead of just breaking up with him. There is nothing mentioned about mental health issues, just about the mother’s rage regarding the cheating boyfriend. The mother ruined the now extinguished lives of the other three children, and Lashaun will undoubtedly remember what he saw and experienced before the car sank and even after, for the rest of his life. There is no way of knowing what kind of life he will lead, and if he will be depressed for the rest of his life to the point that he is unable to function and enjoy life.
The father will be upset as well as his family and the mother’s family, and it seems that Lashaun may be living with a great-aunt, but there is no way of knowing if that home is any better than the one that he was in. Also, he will now be without his siblings, and that guilt will be forever with him. Even if someone read the message before the mother did this they would have no way of knowing where she was, but if I had read that I would call 911 and send the cops to look for her or her car.
