(Scroll down for video) A man told a police dispatcher that he threw his children into a lake because he did not want to lose custody of them.

The man of Raleigh, North Carolina, said that he tried to drown his two daughters and his son in a lake in Durham, because child protective services wanted to take his children from him.

29-year-old Alan Tysheen Eugene Lassiter said that he was dealing with pedophilia.

“I was dealing with some sexual desires and I tried getting some help, but instead, they turned their backs on me, and they tried to take my children and the rest the little happiness that I have,” Lassiter said.

Lassiter tossed his three children into the lake shortly after 9:00 p.m. on Sunday.

An off duty Durham County deputy officer pulled the 2 young daughters out of the water. The man’s 7-year-old son managed to escape and run for help, police said.

The officers performed CPR on the girls until EMS arrived. The girls remained hospitalized. The 3-year-old girl is in critical condition and the 5-year-old girl is in stable condition.

The 7-year-old boy is with his family, according to police. Lassiter was arrested and charged with 3 counts of attempted murder.
