A baby girl has been found alive in a car more than 14 hours after the vehicle plunged into a river in Utah.

The 18-month-old was discovered hanging upside down above water in her car seat by a fisherman on Saturday afternoon, police said.

The toddler's 25-year-old mother, named as Lynn Groesbeck from Springville, was found dead in the driver's seat.
