Video Shows Rescue of Toddler Who Survived Crash into River
Dramatic new body camera footage shows the rescue of an 18-month-old girl who was pulled from a car after 14 hours in a frigid Utah river.
The vehicle that 18-month-old Lily Groesbeck was trapped in wasn’t visible from the road. Luckily, a fisherman stumbled upon the car and alerted authorities.
This new video shows the moment first responders turned the vehicle over and pulled the toddler out.
One man is heard on camera saying, “She’s definitely hypothermic.”
All four police officers who responded to the scene say they heard a woman’s voice begging, “Help me, help me now.” First responders can’t explain the voice because Lily’s mother Lynn Groesbeck died hours before in the crash.
Lily has since been released from the hospital following the tragic accident that killed her mother.
