Nicolette Green & Wendy Newton: 'Chained' Florence Victims ID'd

Holden says the deputies tried to get the mental health patients out but couldn't open the doors.

Thompson identified the women as Windy Newton, 45, and Nicolette Green, 43. "It makes it seem like someone took a very unnecessary risk". They trusted the hospitals and the Sheriff Deputies with their lives and that trust was abused. "They were trying to negotiate through fast-running water, and it just didn't work out", Richardson told AP about the incident. High-water rescue teams rescued the deputies from on top of the van.

Hurricane Florence has now killed at least three dozen people - including at least eight in SC.

"It can be assumed he did" drive around a barricade, Sheriff Phillip Thompson said, adding that investigators want to know why the deputies chose to disregard the safety measure.

The incident is being investigated by the State Law Enforcement Division and SC highway patrol. "People need to know exactly how it happened".

Responders congregate on September 19, 2018, near where two people drowned Tuesday evening when they were trapped in a Horry County Sheriff transport van while crossing an overtopped bridge over the Little Pee Dee River, in Marion County, S.C.

'Tonight's incident is a tragedy, ' he said. One patient was from Waccamaw Mental Health and the other was from the Loris Hospital.




The two deputies attempted to extricate the persons being transported.

Asked how the women were restrained in the back of the van, Fox told CNN they were "seat belted".

The van was carrying the detainees to a different facility in Darlington, South Carolina when it was overtaken by flood waters on Tuesday. The two individuals being transported were confirmed dead by the Marion County Coroner.

The van was traveling west on Highway 76 into neighboring Marion County when floodwaters overcame the vehicle. "Just like you, we have questions we want answered", he said. This incident is being investigated by the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

Justin Bamberg, a state lawmaker and lawyer who has represented the families of several people injured or killed by law enforcement officers, said Wednesday he's perplexed by the decision to transport anyone in such uncertain weather conditions.

The SCDOT added the driver of the vehicle had to go around a barrier to get stuck where they were. Due to unsafe conditions and rising waters, additional search and rescue teams are arriving to assist in the recovery of the vehicle.
