LAKE WORTH, Fla. (WJLA) -- A mother and her three children were saved from their SUV as it sunk into a canal by some Good Samaritans who some might say are unlikely rescuers. The mangled guardrail where a mother lost control and drove her SUV through the railing sits on the side of the road. Her car traveled down an embankment and into a canal near John Prince Park in Lake Worth, Florida. Chris Schuddekopf and his friends, homeless people who spend their nights in the park, were able to jump into the canal and save the mother and her three children. "We ran from the pavilion, came over here, jumped in the water and saved them. One of the other homeless guys staying here jumped in the water and went to the other side... pulled each one out... each kid out one by one, plus the mom, and we all carried them up the hill," said Schuddekopf as he watched the submerged SUV pulled from the water. The mother and her 3 children between the ages of 2 and 4 are expected to survive their injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
