POLICE yesterday charged Robert Farquharson with the murder of his three young sons, who drowned when the car he was driving plunged into a dam near Geelong in Victoria on Father's Day. Mr Farquharson escaped from the car before it sank in the dam off the Princes Highway near Winchelsea, but his children, Jai, 10, Tyler, 7, and Bailey, 2, drowned. He later told police he had a coughing fit and lost consciousness as the car left the road. He told them he only awoke when the car was in the dam, at about 7pm on September 4. Mr Farquharson said he then scrambled from the sedan but could not rescue his children before the car sank in seven metres of freezing water. Detectives believe the boys managed to free themselves from their seat belts but were unable to escape from the car as it sunk nose first into the dam. It is likely that one of the older boys freed Bailey, who was in a child restraint in the back seat. http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/dad-held-over-dam-plunge-deaths/2005/12/14/1134500916759.html >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Poor little boys I wish we had DP for this type of ******* .I would drown trying to save my kids .sounds like the older boy tried to save the toddler .
