An 18-month-old baby girl was found alive in a car more than 14 hours after the vehicle plunged into a river in Utah, USA. The girl was discovered hanging upside down above water in her car seat by a fisherman on Saturday afternoon, police told reporters. The child’s mother 25yr old Lynn Groesbeck was found dead in the driver’s seat.

The little girl was immediately rushed to a hospital in Salt Lake City, where her condition has been upgraded from critical to stable.

Three police officers and four firefighters entered the river to rescue the child and took her to the hospital. Police told reporters that they will not be releasing any further details about the baby unless her condition changes. The baby’s name was also not released.
