Not all stories of spirits and ghosts have to be about scary or aggressive encounters. There have actually been times ghosts rescued people. Incidents of people saved by ghosts usually involve a ghost alerting someone to the location of someone who's trapped or otherwise in need. In March of 2015, headlines began to surface along the lines of "Disembodied Voice Saves Baby." In this amazing story, a voice led officers to the location of a baby girl trapped in a car submerged in water.

The crash occurred in Spanish Fork, UT, when the driver of the car, 25-year-old Lynn Groesbeck's car careened into the river. While Lynn was killed quickly, her 18-month-old daughter Lily Groesbeck held on overnight. When officers heard someone calling for help while examining the wreckage, they found Lily still alive in the car. The voice that called for help did not belong to a child and no one can explain what happened. Whatever you choose to believe, it's an amazing story that resulted in the stunning rescue of a young child.

  • The Voice Was "Clear As Day"

    One officer who participated in the rescue said the voice was very clear. Officer Tyler Beddoes claimed he could see someone in the front seat. He then heard a voice saying, “Help me, we’re in here.” He described the voice as “clear as day” and is still baffled as to who could have been talking.

  • It Did Not Sound Like A Child's Voice

    There was no one in or near the car but the mother and her child. The car was found overturned in a river in Spanish Fork, UT. Lynn Groesbeck was dead already and the only other person in the car was her 18-month-old daughter, Lily Groesbeck. The baby is believed to have been strapped upside down to her car seat for at least 14 hours. 

    While Lily was able to talk a little at the time, she was not conscious when she was rescued. In addition to this, the officers said the voice they heard definitely did not sound like it was coming from a child. It’s highly unlikely Lily was the one calling for help.

  • The Mother Was Not Alive When The Voice Was Heard

    Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck was pronounced dead at the scene. An exact time of death has not been released, but it’s been reported she had been dead for several hours. She likely died the night before, either during the crash or shortly afterwards. She could not conceivably have been calling for help.

  • All Officers On The Scene Heard The Voice

    If only one officer thought they heard a voice, that could be easily dismissed. During a stressful situation, with a lot of commotion, it could be possible to mishear or imagine something. However, there were multiple officers on the scene and every one of them reported hearing the same mysterious voice calling out for help.
