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.
(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.
