Divers today recovered the bodies of three more children of a distraught woman who drove her mini-van off the end of Pier 68 in San Pedro Tuesday night, killing herself and her four children in an apparent murder-suicide, authorities said.

The bodies of three boys, ages 4, 6 and 13, were pulled by Los Angeles Port Police divers from their watery graves in the van. The vehicle was stuck in about 2 feet of bottom mud. Ophilia Yip, 34, the children's mother, gunned the mini-van and plunged off the end of the pier at a high rate of speed about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday.
