Oh friends – welcome back to my Bacon’s Tales of Terrors for this month. This month I’m taking another true story one that you might have heard out of the headlines. We here at the Hotel Thompson were in awe hearing and seeing it on the news last month and then we found out more information that was just simply astonishing. So, are you ready for it my friends?
During the mid-part of March last month, Lynn Groesbeck was traveling in her vehicle with her 18 month old baby, Lily. For some reason, the car went off the road into the freezing river in Spanish Fork, Utah. The two were trapped in the car for over 14 hours.
A fisherman happen to see the vehicle and called authorities. When four rescue workers came to the car, they all said they heard a woman yelling for help – a mature older voice. This voice was so pleading that the workers got into the frigid waters and were able to work harder and flip the car over. The vehicle had been partially submerged in the freezing water and workers were shocked to see the mother had passed away and had been deceased for hours but the baby was still alive and in her car seat.
Was it adrenaline that helped the workers push the vehicle over? Was it the pleading voice of Help that gave the four workers the adrenaline they needed to get the car upright? Was it the deceased mother that was still looking over her precious baby? Where did the voice come from that all four heard? And let me add that the water was so cold that some of the workers had to be treated for hypothermia. How did the baby survive the cold for 14 hours?
Baby Lily is recovering in the hospital and family say that she is going to be just fine. What do you think of this true story? Did it give you goosebumps like it did us here at the Hotel Thompson?

yes it did give me goosebumps and made my heart smile. I believe it was the spirit of mama watching over baby and making sure they were found.

I bet there was something or someone who protected Baby Lily…and I’m glad she survived… but I’m so sorry that she has to grow up now without her mom :o(

I know! That was so sad. But even from beyond, a mother’s love was still alive and watching out for her baby. Such love! I’m sure mom will still be watching over the years. XOXO – Bacon

I did hear about this when it happened. Wow! One lucky kid, well. .. Not so lucky, her mom isn’t here for her. At least in this parallel!

Exactly! But to think her mom was watching over her from beyond to get her help. Shivers! That is awesome. You just know that mom will be with her the rest of her life watching. XOXO – Bacon
