Unexplained Calls for Help Lead Police to Toddler in Overturned Car

How Did Toddler Survive Hanging Upside Down After Crash Into River?


 

An 18-month-old girl was found alive in an overturned car after a crash in which the vehicle plunged into a frigid river in Spanish Fork, Utah. 

The baby's mother, 25-year-old Lynn Groesbeck, died in the accident. Police believe she lost control of the car on a bridge Friday night.

Authorities said the car ended up along an embankment and was only partially submerged.

It was not until 14 hours later that a fisherman stumbled upon the car, with baby Lily hanging upside down in her car seat.

First responders jumped in the water, pushed the car over and pulled Lily out. 

Lily is in critical but stable condition. Her aunt says she's doing "remarkably well considering what she went through."

It is unclear what caused the accident, but authorities ruled out drugs or alcohol as a factor. 

Several of the police and firefighters had to be treated for hypothermia after jumping into the frigid water.

Watch the incredible report above.


UPDATE, 2p ET: The baby's condition has been upgraded from critical to stable.
