A police van transporting two shackled up mental health patients was overcome by floodwaters in SC on Tuesday night - leaving both detainees dead after cops failed to set them free, officials said.

The incident is being investigated by HCSO and the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division.

Horry County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Brooke Holden said a sheriff's office van was carrying two "detainees" and two deputies to Darlington on Tuesday night when it was overtaken by floodwaters.

"I'm not sure if it was the way the van was positioned, against a guardrail, or if it was pressure from the water, but unfortunately they were not able to get the van doors open and get the ladies out", Thompson said.

The van couldn't be removed Tuesday night because of rising waters and unsafe conditions, according to the release. Thompson says Deputies Joshua Bishop and Stephen Flood have been placed on leave during an internal and state police investigation.

Asked how the women were restrained in the back of the van, Fox told CNN they were "seat belted". High-water rescue teams rescued the deputies from on top of the van. Due to risky conditions and rising waters, additional search and rescue teams are arriving to assist in the recovery of the vehicle.

Thompson told reporters that deputies appear to have driven around a barrier blocking the road but the investigation is ongoing.

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".

Hershberger told the station she took her mother ― who was diagnosed with schizophrenia ― to Waccamaw Center for Mental Health on Tuesday to meet with a therapist. Thompsons said his office would cooperate with the probe. 'Just like you, we have questions we want answered'.

Justin Bamberg, a state lawmaker and lawyer who has represented the families of several people injured or killed by law enforcement officers, said Wednesday he's perplexed by the decision to transport anyone in such uncertain weather conditions.

Speaking to the Associated Press, Marion County Coroner Jerry Richardson said, "They're both still under the water".

'Tonight's incident is a tragedy, ' he said.

"I know that it is a very sad situation so ive just been praying for the victims and the families of the victims", said Martin.
