Shakayla Denson and Je'Hyrah Daniels

Authorities say a 4-year-old girl is dead after a woman believed to be her mother threw her into a Florida river.

Officials said 911 calls started coming in around 4 p.m. from witnesses saying they'd seen a woman wade into the river just north of the Columbus Drive bridge with a child.

The body of the little girl was discovered 75 feet offshore around 4:30 p.m. She was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Denson is accused of stealing a vehicle from an auto fix shop Thursday afternoon.

Denson is accused of stealing a car from an auto fix shop, then parking the vehicle, walking into the river at about 4 p.m. and leaving her daughter, Je'Hyrah Daniels, in the water.

"I just want to provide an update on the situation we had yesterday which was quite frankly, tragic, chaotic and unbelievable", said Chief Dugan.

About halfway across the river, with the water near the top of her shoulders, Denson released the child, turned around and waded back to the shore.

A GoFundMe page that was created by Denson in October 2017 stated Je'Hyrah was diagnosed with autism, the report said. Her mother, Shakayla Denson, is facing a number of charges, including first-degree felony murder.

"Our dive team responded, we had units here immediately", Dugan said.

The victim was identified as Je'Hyrah Daniels, 4.

In 2015, police say a man threw his 5-year-old daughter to her death off the Skyway Bridge in St. Petersburg. It was unclear whether she had an attorney.
