Description of Incident
4-month old Imogen was submerged in water for several minutes when her mother's car overturned and plunged into a ditch in Gosberton, Lincolnshire.

Imogen was "blue and lifeless" when her mother Beckie Thompson pulled her out of the car.

But a man fought through his own tears as he resuscitated Imogen, who eventually started breathing again.

Miss Thompson, a trainee nurse, had been driving Imogen to nursery when the accident happened near the junction of Sweetlands Way and Station Road, at about 10:50 BST on 17 September.
