On the night of Friday, March the 6th, Jennifer Groesbeck and her daughter, Lily, left her parents house to make the drove home from Salem to Springfield. The car would never make it to it’s destination…
Jenny lost control of her vehicle and plunged into the icy Spanish Fork River located in Utah. A completely shocked fisherman stumbled across the wreckage the following day. At that point, it’s estimated that the car had been in the icy waters for about 14 hours.
The emergency services arrived and immediately figured that the car had been abandoned in the river, probably by joy riders.
When they eventually managed to get close to the car they could see that there was someone inside.
They then heard a female voice call out for help, so they all rushed to vehicle and managed to flip it over. There were two people inside.
One of the first respondents reports that he had heard a voice, and he believes one of the others responded with, “We’re trying our best to get in there.”
The adult in the car was dead, and the child looked near enough deceased itself.
They managed to get Lily out of her child seat and safely ashore. The waters were so cold, that the firefighters who had jumped into the river to save the little girl were treated for hypothermia at a nearby hospital.
To this day, none of them really know where that call for help came from.
They later found out that Jenny had actually died on impact, so there’s no way she could have been behind the cry for help. Even knowing that Jennifer couldn’t have called for help, they stand by what they heard.
Jenny’s family are in no doubt that the call they heard came from their dead daughter. She was a devoted mother and she would have found some sort of way to stay with her baby until help arrived.
Lily spent approximately a week in the ICU while recovering.
So what really happened here?
What do you believe?
Did a loving mother find some way to transcend between life and death, to keep her child alive?
