  • APThe Lumber River overflows onto a stretch Interstate 95 in Lumberton N.C. Tuesday Sept. 18 2018 following flooding from Hurricane Florence

Two women "detainees" chained in the back of a police van died when the vehicle was engulfed by Hurricane Florence floodwaters.

Rescue teams were able to get to the deputies, authorities said.

"They trusted the hospitals and the sheriff deputies with their lives and that trust was abused", the family said in a statement. "She said if you ever have anything bad, just put all your bad feelings in these cupcakes and eat them", said Rose. "We are fully cooperating with the State Law Enforcement Division to support their investigation of this event".

Richardson says the patients' bodies were being recovered Wednesday morning.

Marion County coroner Jerry Richardson told HuffPost on Wednesday that the submerged van had to be left overnight with the women's bodies still inside because of the danger it posed to rescue workers. By the time they got there, the van was underwater, and the deputies were on the roof.

Thompson said he did not think the women were in restraints in the back of the van, noting that restraints are used for combative patients "and I understand they were not".

They were about halfway through the trip by 6 p.m., on Highway 76 near the Little Pee Dee River, when the van encountered the running water. At almost 7 p.m. Wednesday, State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry confirmed the bodies had been recovered.

The death toll from Hurricane Florence climbed to at least 37, and North Carolina's governor pleaded with thousands of evacuees not to return home just yet.

The closed northbound stretch now runs about 17 miles, from about mile marker 181 to mile marker 198, the Transportation Department said.
