A young Utah mother died after an accident sent her car into a river upside-down with her 18-month-old daughter in a car seat. Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, 25, did not survive, but her daughter, Lily, is now in stable condition, as reported by the Spanish Fork City Police Department.
After spending almost 14 hours suspended upside-down in the overturned car in freezing temperatures with frigid water inches from her head, Lily survived in fleece pants and a sweatshirt.
Cops formed a human chain on the shoreline and pulled the cold, unconscious girl to safety, but not before they arrived at the scene and heard a mysterious grown woman’s voice asking softly for help.
The driver was already dead, the girl was unconscious and not old enough to speak the words asking for help… there was no one else in the car.
“That’s the part that really sends me for a whirl,” said Spanish Fork Police Officer Tyler Beddoes Beddoes who confirmed the voice with three other officers helping to overturn the vehicle.
“I’m not really religious, but that’s what you think of.”
