According to WBTW, two Horry County Sheriff's deputies were transporting two mental health patients to McLeod Behavioral Health in Darlington.

The bodies of the two women were recovered on Wednesday, almost 24 hours after the event began, from the submerged van in the Little Pee Dee River.

According to reporter Summer Dashe of WPDE TV-15 (ABC - Myrtle Beach/ Florence, S.C.), "many of the roads in (in the area) are closed because of flooding".

"Tonight's incident is a tragedy", Horry County Sheriff Phillip Thompson said in Tuesday's statement.

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.

The two women were being transported from Conway to Darlington, according to the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

Rising water has suspended recovery efforts for the evening.

Neither woman has an arrest record in SC, according to documents obtained from the State Law Enforcement Division.

The incident brings Florence's death toll to 37.

President Donald Trump is slated to visit North Carolina on September 19 to see the damage.

Cooper warned locals that the flooding isn't over yet.

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.

"I know for many people this feels like a nightmare that just won't end", he said.

Marion County Coroner Jerry Richardson confirmed the victims were female.

"The two deputies attempted to extricate the persons being transported", the news release said. "Floodwater rose rapidly and the deputies were unable to open the doors to reach the individuals in the van".

Richardson said the van came across rising water and was carried off the road. The two deputies were rescued, the occupants have not been recovered.

Rescue teams were able to save the deputies from the van's roof, but they could not pull the vehicle from the water because it was too risky, according to the release. This incident is being investigated by the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
