WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Police in Massachusetts say they’re seeking surveillance video after a 7-year-old girl was kidnapped from her grandparents’ home and survived being thrown from a bridge into a lake.

Worcester police are asking area business owners that have outdoor security cameras to review their footage. Police are seeking any video or images of a light-colored Saturn Ion.

Police say the girl was taken early Sunday by 35-year-old family friend Joshua Hubert. Investigators say she was put in a car, choked and then thrown into Lake Quinsigamond (kwin-SIG’-uh-mund). The girl swam to shore in Shrewsbury and was later found.

Police say she suffered injuries not considered life-threatening.

Hubert pleaded not guilty Monday to kidnapping.

Officials at the Fay School, a Southborough private school where Hubert worked, said Tuesday he was suspended indefinitely.
