On Valentine’s Day 2009, 7-year-old Tiffany Dombrowski stopped breathing for 30 minutes when the pickup truck she was in fell through a patch of thin ice on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin. Also in the car was her friend, 9 year-old Savannah Kleinhans, and Savannah’s father, who was driving the truck. Sadly, Savannah and her father did not survive the crash.
