Two Teens and Baby Get Spotted in the Nick of Time

Two Wisconsin teens with a baby in the car skidded off an icy road and into a lake. As the car sank, they were lucky to be spotted by Good Samaritans passing by.

Nycole Stream, 19, was driving in Apple River, Wisconsin on December 23 when she lost control of her Toyota Tundra. Krystyna Walenczak, 16, and her 5-month-old Ayidden were in the vehicle with her. The car plunged down a steep embankment and broke through ice covering a lake.

Terry and Pamela Blegen drove by and happened to notice a splash. They investigated and realized it was a sinking pick-up truck. The Polk County Sheriff's Office reported in a press release that Terry got into the freezing water to try and help whoever was in the car while Pamela called 911.

Thomas Cole and Shawn Spafford were also driving by at the moment and stopped to lend a hand. "The three men determined that a small child was still submerged in the vehicle. All three men continued the search until the baby boy was located and removed from vehicle. The child, initially unresponsive, was revived by the rescuers," said the press release.

Emergency responders rushed the teens and baby to a nearby hospital, and the baby was then transported to a children’s hospital. All three are doing fine, and their rescuers are being hailed as heroes.
