(Newser) – A car accident turned out to be very lucky in Sweden yesterday: Police officers accidentally skidded off a snowy road into a ditch, only to discover a missing 2-year-old girl, the Local reports. They heard the barefoot, lightly-dressed toddler crying; she had wandered off while playing with her sister three hours before and was almost two miles away from her house. The officers made their way through waist-deep snow to get the child, who was "frozen and sad, but ... didn't need any medical attention," a police spokesperson says.
