Dramatic video shows rescue of Utah infant from car in river
Police have released body-camera footage that shows the frantic rescue of an 18-month-old Utah girl from a car that had crashed into a frigid river 14 hours earlier.
The dramatic video from emergency responders’ cameras, released Friday, shows them discovering 25-year-old Lynn Groesbeck of Springville dead in the front seat, then finding her daughter, Lily Groesbeck, in the back seat.
A responder is heard saying “There’s a baby!” as he directs crews to rescue the infant, who was strapped in a car seat upside down for 14 hours.
A fisherman spotted the car March 7, the day after it hit a cement barrier on a bridge and careened into the river in Spanish Fork.
The girl, who was initially listed in critical condition, was released from the hospital Wednesday.
