'Original' video of van driving into ocean sought

Posted: Updated:

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The Public Defender's Office is seeking original video of a woman driving her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean off Daytona Beach with her children inside.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/1kBFxJ1 ) reports that Ebony Wilkerson remains in the hospital. The North Charleston, South Carolina, woman faces three counts each of attempted second-degree murder and child abuse following the March incident.

Public Defender James Purdy says Wilkerson, who is eight months pregnant, was hospitalized after hitting herself in the stomach.

Purdy says he wants the "original" video of the ocean incident, taken by a man who was watching from the beach. David Smith of the state attorney's office says he'd be happy to share all the videos he has, but questions the meaning of "original" video in the age of ubiquitous cell phone footage.
