Miracle as US baby survives for 14 hours in submerged car
Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck (pictured left with her daughter, Lily), 25, from Springville, Utah was found dead in the driver's seat of the crashed car.
Her 18-month-old baby, Lily (pictured inset bottom with her mother), survived the accident and is in stable but critical condition at Primary Children's Hospital, following the incident. Police said Ms Groesbeck was driving back from her parents house Friday night when she veered off the road, hit an embankment and ended in Utah's Spanish Fork River. A neighbor in the area reported hearing a loud noise near the bridge that night around 11pm, but couldn't locate the cause of the sound. A fisherman found the crashed car (pictured right) in the river Saturday at 12.30pm, about 14 hours after the accident is believed to have happened. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
