An 18-month-old baby girl survived against incredible odds in an accident that sent the car she was in into an icy river and killed her mother.
A fisherman discovered the wreck about 12:30 p.m. Saturday in Utah’s Spanish Fork River, about 14 hours after the accident. He found the baby upside down, still strapped in a car seat.
Investigators believe the accident occurred about 10:30 p.m. Friday when the red Dodge Caliber 25-year-old Lynn Groesbeck was driving hit a cement barrier sending it crashing into the river below.
The car landed on its roof which kept the baby above the water level until she was discovered.
According to Komo News, the water was so frigid that three police officers and four firefighters involved in the rescue had to be treated at a local hospital for hypothermia.
The baby’s name has not been released.
