The bodies of two toddlers were pulled Monday from a car submerged in a South Carolina River, USA. Their mother was arrested and the police is investigating whether their deaths were accidental.

Two-year-old Devean C. Duley and 18-month-old Ja'van T. Duley were dead by the time divers got to the car in the river near a rural boat landing. The local Coroner on site would not speculate on a cause of death until autopsies were completed Tuesday.

The boys' mother, Shaquan Duley, 29, was being held Monday on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident. It was not immediately clear whether she had a lawyer.

The Highway Patrol was notified about 6:15 a.m (CAT) that a woman needed help getting her children out of the car. The children were still strapped in their child seats when divers found them about 45 minutes after being called to the scene.

Early in the investigation, there was not enough indicators to substantiate that there was an automobile accident. Authorities are looking into all possibilities as to what happened.

The woman, who did not have a cell phone, had walked some distance down the country road by the boat landing and flagged down a passing motorist to call the Highway Patrol.

"She showed some emotion, but I can't say she was overly distraught," a police spokeperson said. "Through her statements, there are some things we think are not believable."

Authorities were attempting to contact the children's father, who did not live with the family.

The police spokeperson said investigators are considering how a traffic accident could have happened at the boat ramp, about 20 yards upstream from a main road that crosses the slow-moving river, about 35 miles south of Columbia in the USA. A mobile home, a house and mechanic's shop are a short distance away.

The case was reminiscent of a famous South Carolina case in 1994. Susan Smith left her 3-year-old and 14-month-old sons strapped in their car seats as she rolled her car into a lake in Union County in the northwest part of the state.

She was convicted in their deaths and is serving a life prison term.
