Rescuers plunge into a frigid Utah river and struggle to open the doors of a car that is partially submerged, in hopes of pulling survivors from the wreckage of the vehicle. This is the scene that unfolds from the vantage point of an officer's body camera as he rushes toward the Spanish Fork River in Utah Saturday where a car crashed, landing up-side-down. And there was a survivor. Lily Groesbeck, 18 months old, was found alive in the car, nearly 14 hours after the vehicle plunged into the river. Her mother, 25-year-old Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, did not survive the crash. First responders can be seen in the video straining to lift the Dodge on its side.
