Cop Hears Woman's Voice Leading Him to Infant. But Mother Was Already Dead


Around 10 p.m. on March 6, 2015, mother Jennifer Lynn Groesbeck was driving home from dinner at her dad’s house with her young daughter Lily. Suddenly, her car inexplicably veered off of a bridge between two barriers and went flying into the river below.

The following morning, a fisherman stumbled upon the overturned car partly submerged in the water. He immediately contacted emergency services, and police soon arrived on the scene.

As they approached the accident, four officers heard a woman’s voice crying for help from inside the car. They quickly worked together to help her and managed to flip the car onto its side.

But when they looked inside the car, they found Jennifer, who had been deceased for hours. It was later determined that she had died instantly in the wreck when the roof collapsed on her upper body.

There was no one else in the car who was able to speak. But in the back seat, they found 18-month-old Lily still alive. She had been hanging upside down in her car seat all that time, the frigid river rushing just inches below her head.

Officer Bryan Dewitt pulled the toddler to safety. “As I grabbed the little baby out of the car seat, as I pulled her head up, I could tell that there was some life in her,” he said. “I could see her eyes open.”

Confused, the officers spoke among themselves to verify that they’d all heard an adult woman calling out for help.

“When we all talked together, I said, ‘Was I the only one that was hearing this?’ thinking that I was hearing things,” Tyler Beddoes, another one of the officers explained.

“And when I talked to the other officers, we all had heard the same thing, a voice saying, ‘Help us. Help me.'”

With the help of the officers and a few firefighters, the baby was taken to a children’s hospital in critical condition.

Thankfully, she was able to make a miraculous recovery, suffering no brain damage and being basically in the same condition she was in before the tragic accident.

Beddoes, who revealed he had been struggling with his faith before responding to the accident, said that the miraculous occurrence changed everything for him.

“When this came around, it really changed everything for me. I wondered why I ever doubted Him,” said Beddoes.

“When we flipped the car over there was no other explanation for it, other than an angel. There was no one else there,” he continued.

“We know there was some other help there, getting us where we needed to be,” he said, referring to the assistance of an angel. After the incident, Beddoes decided to publish a book to share the details of the miracle he and his fellow officers had witnessed.

The book, Proof of Angels, tells the amazing story and explores “the evidence for the existence of angels in our world.”

Baby Lily was able to go home with her dad, Deven Trafny, shortly after going to the hospital. Of course, Trafny is extremely thankful that his daughter is alive today.

“She should be gone. She shouldn’t be here,” he said the day they were discharged. “I’m blessed. I’m counting all my blessings right now.”
