Doctors have permitted a Utah toddler to leave hospital after she was rescued from a car 14 hours after it crashed into a frigid river. The permission for the release was granted on Wednesday, days after the accident that claimed the life of her mother.
"I came in, I put my finger in her hand, and I told her 'dad is here' and I loved her. She squeezed my hand and then a few hours later she tried to open her eyes. I haven't left her bedside since", said the girl's father Deven Trafny, 34.
At about 4pm, 18-month-old Lily Groesbeck was released from Lily Groesbeck, said spokeswoman Bonnie Midget. The girl is doing fine now apart from a few bruises. She is facing no trouble and is able to play and talk. She was reciting nursery rhymes, said Trafny.
