MIRACLE AT THE RIVER… Rescuers Heard Mysterious Woman’s Cry for Help – But Only Baby Was Alive (VIDEO)
The baby was trapped in the car for 14 hours.
FOX News reported:
Four police officers rushing to an overturned car in an icy Utah river say they all heard the same thing: a mysterious female voice calling out “Help,” from inside the vehicle.
But the driver of the car was dead and her 18-month-old daughter, while still alive, couldn’t have been the speaker.
It was a mystery that continues to haunt the officers – and may never be explained.
Officer Jared Warner of the Spanish Fork Police Department was one of the first who came to the rescue of tiny Lily Groesback, who was strapped in a seat in the back of her mother’s car, which was precariously hanging upside down in 40-degree water.
“We’ve gotten together and just talk about it and all four of us can swear that we heard somebody inside the car saying, ‘Help,’” Warner told Deseret News.
But when they flipped over the midsized car, they discovered a 25-year-old woman dead in the front seat and Lily unconscious in her car seat.
“The only people in there were the deceased mother and the child,” Officer Bryan Dewitt told the paper.
Officer Tyler Beddoes said they can’t explain it, but have no doubt they heard it.
“It wasn’t just something that was just in our heads. To me it was plain as day cause I remember hearing a voice,” Beddoes told the Deseret News. “I think it was Dewitt who said, ‘We’re trying. We’re trying our best to get in there.’ How do you explain that? I don’t know,” he said.
Deseret News has more on the rescue.
Dewitt was one of the first officers to arrive. The incident was originally reported as a possible abandoned vehicle in the river. But as he got closer, he said he could see the mother inside. Three more officers arrived almost simultaneously at the river.
And that’s when they heard a voice.
“We were down on the car and a distinct voice says, ‘Help me, help me,'” Dewitt recalled.
“It wasn’t just something that was just in our heads. To me it was plain as day cause I remember hearing a voice,” officer Tyler Beddoes said. “I think it was Dewitt who said, ‘We’re trying. We’re trying our best to get in there.’
“How do you explain that? I don’t know,” he said, adding that the voice didn’t sound like a child.
“It was a positive boost for every one of us because I think it pushed us to go harder a little longer. I don’t think that any one of us had intended on flipping a car over that day,” Beddoes said. “We know there was some other help there, getting us where we needed to be.”
