Today, four cops in Utah have sworn that they heard a disembodied voice “ghost” crying for help. They followed the voice to discover a toddler locked in an upside down car submerged in water. The toddler would have drowned had he not been found.
According to the cops, the toddler would never have been found if it weren’t for a voice crying out to them.
Here’s the bizarre mystery. When the cops flipped the car over they found that there was no one in the car capable of talking.
“The only people in there were the deceased mother and the child,” said Officer Bryan DeWitt, of Spanish Fork police.
The cops saved the life of Eighteen month old Lily. She was found strapped upside down in her car seat, where she had remained for fourteen hours. Her mother died at the scene. The toddler was listed Sunday in critical but stable condition at a nearby hospital.
25 year old Groesberg was driving home around eleven on Friday, after visiting her parents in Salem. She reportedly lost control of the cart and crashed into the river. A fisherman discovered the vehicle two hours later at midnight.
“We were down on the car and a distinct voice says, ‘Help me, help me,’” DeWitt said. “The voice definitely was not just in our heads,” adds Officer Tyler Beddoes. “[We all heard it as plain as day] because I remember hearing a voice. I think it was Dewitt who said, ‘We’re trying. We’re trying our best to get in there.’”
“How do you explain that? I don’t know,” Beddoes added.
The cops were worried that the child might have died. But her little eyes lit up, her eyelids fluttering as she regained consciousness. The officers tore through the car seat to rescue her. Firefighters, in a desperate attempt to rescue the child, jumped into the river. Several were treated for hypothermia. But the rescued life of fourteen year old Lily is a miracle they’re all thankful to have been a part of.
“We’ve gotten together and just talking about it, and all four of us can swear that we heard somebody inside the car saying, ‘Help,’” said Officer Jared Warren. “We’re not exactly sure where that voice came from.”
