DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., March 5 (UPI) -- A family of four was rescued from their minivan when it became submerged in the surf along Daytona Beach, Fla., a Volusia County official said.

Beach Safety Capt. Tammy Marris said officials were investigating how the South Carolina woman and her three children ended up in the water Tuesday, the Daytona News-Journal reported.
