A pregnant woman and her pal rescued after getting lost hiking on a Maine mountain died just minutes later after accidentally driving into the ocean.

Pregnant Amy Stiner, 37, was hiking at Roque Bluff State Park with friend Melissa Moyer, 38, on Tuesday night when a heavy downpour stopped them in their tracks.

After calling for help, they were found by nearby landowner and off-duty firefighter Wayne Hansom, who dropped them off at Stiner’s 2001 blue Dodge minivan.

But when they left the parking area at 9 p.m., organic farmer Stiner turned right instead of left and, through a heavy fog, accidentally drove down a boat ramp and into the water.
