    The frantic voices of rescuers can be heard on the body cam video showing the moment baby Lily was found one week ago.

    The 18-month-old girl hangs upside down after her mother's car crashed and flipped into a frigid Utah river some 14 hours earlier.

    A firefighter is seen lifting her tiny body, wrapped in pink, from the red car where Lily's mother, Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, 25, lost her life.

    The car landed on its roof in the Spanish Fork River.

    From the murky waters, the rescuer hands baby Lily to a police officer. He dashes up the rocky banks of the Spanish Fork, pressing the infant close to his chest for warmth.

    "Got it," the officer is heard saying.

    Lily is freezing.

    "Come on, baby," he says. "She's definitely hypothermic."

    In the ambulance, the officer pats little Lily on the back in an attempt to get her breathing. Lily is on her side. She looks pale, her tiny arm appears stiff.

    "Come on, sweetie," the officer implores. "Come on, sweetie."

    On the ambulance to a hospital, rescuers perform CPR. They try to warm her.

    "We're almost there," one rescuer is heard to say. "Are you getting a pulse?"

    "I can't feel anything," says another.

    At the hospital, as Lily is rushed into the emergency room, she vomits.

    "We've been doing CPR on her," the officer tells emergency room personnel. "She's been throwing up a little bit."
