After spending almost 14 hours suspended upside-down in freezing temperatures, 18-month-old Lily Groesbeck survived. Unfortunately, Lily’s mother, Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, did not survive. Three police officers and two firemen say they heard a mysterious voice asking for help before they knew a toddler was in a submerged car. Officers Tyler Beddoes, Jared Warner and Bryan Dewitt, who responded to the incident in the Spanish Fork River near Salt Lake City, Utah, say they heard an adult voice say, “Help me.” The two firefighters, Paul Tomadakis and Lee Mecham, also heard the voice.
