Last year when Harold Camping was blaring his end of times scenario there was a news story here in Los Angeles about a woman in Palmdale that tried to kill her two daughters to save them from the apocalypse. This woman turned out to be a former Church of God member who tried to slit her daughters throats. The girls survived and she is in prison.
Last night on the news another woman in Palmdale tried to drown her son in a pool to save him from the apocalypse. I just hope this is not another COG member! The boy survived, thankfully!
PALMDALE, Calif. (KTLA) -- A mother in Palmdale is being held on $1-million bail after allegedly trying to drown her 8-year-old son in the pool at their apartment complex.
Around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, deputies from the Palmdale Sheriff's Station responded to a rescue call of a woman attempting to hold a child under water in the pool at the Monte Vista apartment complex.
Once at the location, they learned that 33-year-old Allaire McDougall attempted to drown her son in the pool, according to a news release.
Bystanders intervened and rescued the boy.
Shes telling him, Son, you have to go. This is the end of the world, witnesses told reporters.
The boy was taken to a local hospital and is now listed in stable condition.
McDougall was arrested for attempted murder and booked at the Palmdale Station.
