A very sad day in Kalamazoo Michigan where a woman has driven herself along with her two children into the Kalamazoo River.

According to WOOD, 3 bodies have been recovered by emergency personnel that included a 44-year-old woman and her two 9-year-old daughters.

The woman and one of the daughters were recovered in the Kalamazoo River close to Verburg Park and the second daughter was found later Tuesday morning.

Authorities say things began just before 11 p.m. Monday when police received a call at a Walgreens of two young women who were upset and looking to locate their uncle. Officers soon found out that a family member intentionally driven herself and two daughters into the Kalamazoo River.

The names of the mother and daughters are being withheld until family members are notified. The incident is still under investigation by the Michigan State Police.

If you have any additional information you are urged to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 269-488-8911.
