Police: Mother Threw Kids From Freeway Overpass

Two young boys are in good condition and their mother is in critical condition after she allegedly threw them from a freeway overpass during rush hour this morning in Dallas before leaping off herself.

Police say one of the boys has a broken arm after surviving the 22-foot fall. A police officer tells The Dallas Morning News "It's a miracle both kids weren't hit directly by a passing car."

The woman was hit by a vehicle after she landed on the freeway below the overpass.

Police say the mother and the boys, ages 6 and 8, were in a car with a man when there was some sort of altercation. The three got out and the man drove off before this morning's incident. Police are now looking for the man.

    How can a mother hurt her children? I have often wondered that. If they were taken from her twice before why would they give them back. The people at the CPS office should be held accountable for this incident also. Why did the boys have to suffer?

    This happened at the exit of I-30 and Jim Miller Rd. in Dallas...the same exit my sister lives off of. According to the Dallas Morning News website, it was her father that she was with. He stopped @ a gas station & she got out with the kids, and walked to the bridge. Witnesses say that the boys struggled as she put them over the edge of the bridge. After the woman jumped, the father supposedly left, but was later seen @ Baylor Hospital w/the woman. It is also known that she has a past criminal history and has had numerous run-ins with CPS (TX equivalent to DSS). These kids had been taken away from her twice, then returned to her. Such a story is absolutely disgusting! So many people want children but cannot have them. Then there are people such as this lady, Khandi Busby, that take their children's' lives for granted.

    How could anyone in their right mind do something to a child(ren) like this? But these were her own flesh and blood. This is sad . The Bible clearly speaks on evil things being done in the last days. The world is surely coming to an end. I pray especially for the kids, but I also pray that the mother would ask God and her kids for forgivenss, and get herself together. However if the mom ever get back right these kids should never be released into her custody.

    I don't know what would make a person want to do something like that. Clearly she has some mental issues.

    There has got to be harsher punishment for poeple that commit or attempt to commit Murder.
