Baby Found Alive in Car Accident Twelve Hours Later

It takes a lot for me to deem something miraculous, but this story from truly is a miracle.

On the night of March 6th, 25-year-old Lynn Groesbeck and her 18-month-old daughter Lily were traveling on a road in Utah, near the Spanish Fork River. Somehow, no one is quite sure what happened yet, the mother lost control of her vehicle and flipped her car into the river, landing on the roof. No one witnessed the crash and no one noticed the vehicle until around noon the next day.

A man was out fishing when he saw the car and called police. When police arrived at the scene, they found the mother was dead in the driver’s seat, while Lily was still strapped into her car seat. Lily was still alive, but barely. Rescuers rushed her to an ambulance to get her to the hospital. The water that the car was partially submerged in was so cold that seven of the rescue team had to be treated for hypothermia after the rescue.

Dan Newlin is glad to know that Lily is alive and getting better. She still has a way to go before she is fully recovered. The policemen who rescued Lily were brought to tears when they heard she was going to make it. Lily’s family has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover her medical costs and her mother’s funeral. The CNN story in the link has a link to the GoFundMe page if you are interested in helping the family out.
