Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

Several officers and firefighters from the city of Spanish Fork, Utah, were responding to a call about a car that had driven off the road and was overturned on the Spanish Fork river. As the officers arrived at the scene, it was clear to them that this was an abandoned vehicle until they all heard the cries for help coming from within the crushed car.

As more rescuers arrived they were finally able to flip the car over only to discover that the driver, a 25 year old mother, had been dead for quite sometime. Only her baby survived the accident and was in critical condition when the rescuers reached her. Their swift reactions allowed them to pull the baby out of the wreckage and save her life. However the mystery still remains. Where did the cries for help come from?

“We’ve gotten together and just talkin’ about it, and all four of us can swear that we heard somebody inside the car saying, ‘Help,'” officer Jared Warner recalled Sunday.

“The only people in there were the deceased mother and the child,” said officer Bryan Dewitt.

“We’re not exactly sure where that voice came from,” Warner told KSL.

But because of the actions of those officers and several Spanish Fork firefighters, 18-month-old Lily was rescued. She remained at Primary Children’s Hospital Sunday in critical condition but was reported to be stable. –Source:

    This reminds me of the Christine Skubish incident here in Northern California. It seems that sometimes mothers can stay near their children after death to insure they are rescued. Amazing.

    This is a pretty compelling case.

  • Happy Pants

    A year and a half year old is capable of yelling help.

    They released the body cam video and you can hear the voice and the officer responding, sounded like a woman’s muffled voice.

  • Jennifer Anne

    Could the woman have been alive and able to call for help and then died when the officers got to her and her baby? Maybe she had just died when they reached her, so it was her who asked for help. I’m trying to think of non-paranormal possibilities for the officers hearing a woman’s voice.
