GOOD NEWS UPDATE: Miracle Toddler Goes Home After Surviving Car Crash Into River
The toddler who was miraculously rescued from a Utah river over the weekend returned home on Wednesday.
18-month-old Lily Groesbeck was found alive in the overturned car after the vehicle plunged into a frigid river in Spanish Fork, Utah.
It was not until 14 hours after the crash that a fisherman stumbled upon the car and alerted emergency personnel.
Multiple officers reported hearing cries for help when they arrived on the scene.
The toddler's mother, Lynn Groesbeck, 25, had died in the crash, so the officers could not explain who was calling out to them.
Yesterday afternoon Lily's father, Deven Trafny, took her home from Primary Children's Hospital.
"She should be gone. She shouldn't be here," Trafny, 34, told reporters outside of the hospital. "I'm blessed. I'm counting all my blessings right now."
Shockingly, she only suffered a few bruises and is in great condition - playing, talking and reciting nursery rhymes, Trafny said.
Meantime, Fox affiliate KSTU reports police found a small bag of marijuana in the car, along with an unopened syringe and an unmarked bottle of prescription medication.
Authorities said it could take up to six weeks to learn the results of toxicology tests to determine whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
