The three police officers who entered the water all say they heard a voice calling for help.

A mystery arose from the rescue: The three police officers who entered the water all say they heard a voice calling for help.

The mother was dead, but the officers told CNN affiliate KSL that they heard an adult’s voice calling to them.

“It felt like I could hear someone telling me, ‘I need help,'” DeWitt told KSL. “It was very surreal, something that I felt like I could hear.”

Warner said he heard the same.

“(It) wasn’t just in our heads,” he told KSL. “To me, it was plain as day. I remember hearing a voice that didn’t sound like a child, just saying ‘help me.'”

Tyler Beddoes, the third officer at the scene, said the same.

“Someone said ‘help me’ inside that car,” he said.

 

 

Vatican receives ransom demand for stolen Michelangelo letters

(Reuters) – The Vatican said on Sunday it had received a ransom demand for the return of two rare documents written by Renaissance master Michelangelo that were stolen from its archives nearly 20 years ago.

The theft of the two documents – one a letter including the signature of the artist who painted the Sistine Chapel, designed part of St. Peter’s Basilica and sculpted statues such as David and the Pieta – had not been made public before Sunday.

Following a report by the Rome newspaper Il Messaggero on Sunday, spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said a cardinal in charge of St. Peter’s Basilica had been contacted recently by a person who offered to get the documents back for what Lombardi called “a certain price”.

Il Messaggero said the person, described as a former Vatican employee, had asked for 100,000 euros.
