A Cry For Help
Tonight I’m running short on spooky stories, so I thought I would share a story that some of you may remember–it made national news in March 2015.
First responders arrived at the scene of a car crash in Utah. The car had gone off a bridge and rested upside down submerged in a river. Because the car could not be seen from the roadway, it was 14 hours after the accident before a fisherman discovered it and called for help.
Four police officers arrived first on the scene. When they saw an arm through the window they jumped into the icy river to search for survivors. They heard a woman’s voice from inside the car, “Help us! We’re in here.” The men worked harder, struggling against their own hypothermia.
They pulled an unconscious, 18 month old baby girl from the wreckage. The baby had been hanging upside down in her car seat since the time of the accident, her head above the water that filled the car below her. They discovered her mother dead in the front seat; her injuries led them to believe that she died on impact.
Reflecting on the voice that had pleaded for their help one of the officers said, “I don’t know what I thought I heard,” he said. “I’m not a typically religious guy. It’s hard to explain — it was definitely something. Where and why it came from, I’m not sure.”
Later, talking over the incident, one of the officers said he thought he was hearing things, but then the other officers said they heard it too. Here is a link to the story: https://www.foxnews.com/us/utah-officers-say-mysterious-voice-called-them-to-rescue-baby-trapped-inside-car
