Police Rescue Baby Trapped In Car, Submerged In River For Fourteen Hours, After Hearing Mysterious ‘Voice’.

March 11, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Four Utah police officers who are being hailed as heroes this week after rescuing an 18-month-old baby from a car that was submerged in a frigid river, are also wrestling to explain what they say was a mysterious “voice” at the scene asking for help.

The four officers all say that when they arrived at the accident at Spanish Fork River, about fifty miles West of Salt Lake City, they heard what sounded like a female voice coming from the car.

They all agree that the voice was saying, “help me, help me.”

The men went into action, leaping into the river and ultimately managing to flip the car on its side.

That was when they discovered the baby, Lily Groesbeck, and her 25-year-old mother, Lynn. Lynn, however, was already dead, apparently having died when the car first plunged into the river, or shortly thereafter.

The car had remained in the river for some 14 hours after Lynn apparently hit a concrete barrier. Nobody spotted the car for so long because it was in a location that was out of sight of the road. It was ultimately a fisherman that alerted authorities.

Amazingly, however, first responders discovered signs of life in the little girl, although she wasn't breathing. They began performing CPR and whisked her away in an ambulance.

The girl is now in stable condition, despite having spent so long in an upside down car exposed to the elements.

"Her improvement is astounding," said her family, according to CNN. "Right now she's watching 'Dora (the Explorer)' and singing '(The) Wheels on the Bus' with Grandpa. She is smiling and laughing for family members. We're blown away by Lily's progress and so grateful to her rescuers."

That now leaves the officers ruminating over the mystery of that voice, which they say did not sound like the voice of a child.

"I remember hearing a voice that didn't sound like a child just say, 'Help me,'" Officer Jared Warner told NBC affiliate KSL. "To me, it was plain as day."

“For two nights I’ve laid awake trying to figure out exactly what it could be. All I know is it was there, we all heard it,” said another of the officers, Tyler Beddoes.

He added: "That’s the part that really sends me for a whirl. I’m not really religious, but that’s what you think of."

“We all got together and we all heard the same type of thing. We just can’t grasp what we were hearing.”

Beddoes said that at one point one of them even responded out loud, shouting that they were trying to reach the people trapped in the car. But with the girl's mother already dead, and the girl herself unconscious, who could have said those words?

No one knows, and it's a mystery that may never be solved.
