“The truth is that they are lucky to be alive. In an effort to educate others who might consider the same activity, they agreed to let their story be told in an effort to make others not make the same bad decision they made. Yes, they were all charged with criminal trespass, but they could have easily lost their lives. All of these young people survived their misfortune, and we want to spread the word that this type of activity is not only illegal, but could be deadly, “said Sgt. Cannon.

Police: 6 Children, 2 Adults Injured in Crash in Delaware
MILFORD, Del. (AP) — Law enforcement authorities in Delaware said Sunday several children were hospitalized after a sport utility vehicle overturned and later became engulfed by fire late Saturday.
Delaware State Police said two 3-year-olds and a 6-year-old were taken to a hospital with critical injuries, while a 10-year-old and two 2-year-olds were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.

Police said a 28-year-old female passenger, a 31-year-old male driver, both of Philadelphia and the six children were rescued from the SUV before it caught on fire. Police said the driver was not properly restrained and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, while the woman, his girlfriend, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said the crash remains under investigation. The names of the passengers were not immediately released.
