Teen Rescues 7 Year Old From Dust Devil: ‘You Saved His Life!’

During a youth baseball game, a massive dust devil suddenly formed around a 7-year-old boy, preventing him from breathing. Just when the child felt he was being lifted off the ground, a hero appeared — and it was all caught on video.

During game season, Sunday afternoons are set aside for competition for little Florida athletes like 7-year-old Bauer Zoya. As such, the stands were filled with proud parents and fans as the young baseball players took their places on the field. The sunny weather and consistent breeze provided the best atmosphere for the game. Unfortunately, it also created the perfect recipe for a disaster.

At the Fort Caroline Athletic Association park, several 8-and-under teams competed in a tournament. When the FCAA Indians and Ponte Vedra Sharks fans took the field, spectators were hoping for an exciting match, The Blaze reported. What they weren’t expecting was a freak dust devil.

When the fourth inning was underway with the Indians at bat, a young batter stepped up to the plate as Bauer Zoya took his place as the catcher. As the pitcher hurled the ball, the batter swung for the fence. Just then, his play was disrupted by a force of nature. Within an instant, a strong dust devil appeared, whipping up a whirlwind and trapping the two young boys at the plate.

The batter managed to flee. However, the tiny catcher was caught directly in the middle of it. Trapped and unable to breathe or see, 7-year-old Bauer Zoya feared for his life.

“I couldn’t breathe that much,” Bauer told WSB-TV. “So I held my breath, and I feel like I couldn’t touch the ground. So I kind of lifted up a little bit. I was scared, and I got afraid [wondering] if someone would pull me out.”

While they may seem fairly harmless, even small dust devils have winds that can reach 30 to 40 mph and last for several minutes, which could easily injure a small child. Thankfully, just when Bauer feared the worst, a hero appeared. In one swift motion, Aidan Wiles, a 17-year-old junior in high school, plowed through the swirling wall of dust and snatched up Bauer, rushing him to safety.

“I just saw him freaked out, just like couldn’t find his way out, and I knew his little body couldn’t handle it, so I just rushed in and got him,” Wiles said. “I was worried about his safety because when I got taught, the players’ safety is always the first thing.”

According to Bauer, Wiles stepped in just in time. The child needed air, but the needle-like spray of dust in his face prevented him from inhaling or fleeing.

“At first, I was scared, but I just told myself to think of happy thoughts. Then I thought the twister got me, but it was Aidan, and I could breathe again,” Bauer said.

After Wiles had carried the boy out of the twister, volunteers rushed to his aid, pouring water on his face and eyes to clear away the debris.

“You saved his life!” one spectator shouted.

Bauer’s father, Brian Zoya, expressed his gratitude to Wiles. He’s incredibly thankful the young umpire was there to step up for his son.

“A kid that just had the presence in mind to just do that, it’s just special to see,” Brian Zoya said. “He had great parents raising him. Next time I see him, I just want to say thank you.”

Unfortunately, the Sharks ended up losing the game. However, Bauer says that the incident has actually given him courage. He feels that his battle with the dust devil has helped him to play bolder than ever.

Even though it ended as soon as it began, Wiles is undoubtedly a hero. He ran straight into the swirling dust devil without a second thought. Despite the number on the scoreboard, Bauer and his rescuer are winners of a different kind.

Hunter Biden Reneges on Request to Testify in Public Hearing After House Republicans Grant His Wish

President Joe Biden’s eldest son, Hunter Biden, has declined an offer from House Republicans to appear at a public hearing, contradicting his previous requests for such a hearing.

The decision was communicated on Wednesday by Biden’s attorney Abbe David Lowell, who conveyed his client’s opposition to the previously-sought after event in a letter acquired by The Daily Caller.

“Your blatant planned-for-media event is not a proper proceeding but an obvious attempt to throw a Hail Mary pass after the game has ended. Let me remind you of a statement you made about how witnesses—and specifically Mr. Biden—could satisfy your prior requests,” Abbe David Lowell wrote.

“At your press conference after the January 10, 2024, Committee hearing to hold Mr. Biden in contempt, you stated: ‘All we need are people to come in for the depositions and then we’ll be finished. We just need people to show up to the depositions and we’ll wrap this up. Nobody wants to wrap this up more than I do.’ Mr. Biden did just as you asked and, as you did when you announced that witnesses could choose depositions, you want to ignore what you said,” Lowell added.

Lowell insisted that a condition for Biden’s public hearing attendance was an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s family business dealings by the House Republicans.

A source informed the Daily Caller about the sequence of receiving the letter.

Lowell insisted that a condition for Biden’s public hearing attendance was an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s family business dealings by the House Republicans.

A source informed the Daily Caller about the sequence of receiving the letter.

“We just received it. They gave it to Punchbowl before providing it to Congress,” the source familiar said.

In response to the letter, Comer accused Hunter Biden of avoiding transparency.

“The House Oversight Committee has called Hunter Biden’s bluff. Hunter Biden for months stated he wanted a public hearing, but now that one has been offered alongside his business associates that he worked with for years, he is refusing to come … The American people demand the truth and accountability for the Bidens’ corruption,” Comer stated.

The controversy roots back to a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee in November, aimed at scrutinizing Hunter Biden’s foreign business transactions. Despite this, Biden opted for a public statement outside the Capitol, diverging from the scheduled closed-door deposition.

During a deposition on February 28, Hunter Biden, repeated he “did not recall” specific details of his foreign business engagements. Yet, he firmly stated his father’s non-involvement.

“I am here today to provide the committees with the one uncontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business, not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions, domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist, never,” Hunter Biden remarked in his opening testimony.

Presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is reportedly eyeing potential running mates, with New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former professional wrestler and Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura at the forefront of his considerations.

Kennedy confirmed on Tuesday that Rodgers and Ventura are top contenders, although it remains unclear if formal offers have been extended. 

Discussions are ongoing, and Kennedy continues to weigh a shortlist of candidates, sources familiar with the matter told The New York Times.

The independent candidate revealed ongoing conversations with Rodgers, noting a month-long dialogue, and with Ventura, who was introduced at a campaign event in Arizona last month.

Although there is no definitive confirmation on the composition of the RFK Jr. ticket, The Times reported the recent registration of the domain name kennedyrodgers.com.

While Kennedy had reportedly contemplated offering the position to figures like former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sen. Rand Paul, and Andrew Yang, talks with these individuals have either stagnated or they have declined the job, unlike the progress made with Rodgers and Ventura.

Rodgers, a vocal supporter of Kennedy’s candidacy, has engaged in continuous discussions with the candidate for the past month, per The Times.

Ventura, the former governor of Minnesota, expressed his efforts to steer RFK away from vaccine-related discussions in a November 2023 YouTube video. When asked about a potential VP offer, Ventura stated, “I would give it serious consideration, certainly.”

Social media responses reflected a mix of opinions regarding the potential presidential ticket.

Pedophiles Linked To John Podesta Have Been Arrested.


The Annex was a vast website where 100,000 pedophiles worldwide would ‘meet’ to share millions of videos and pictures of child sex abuse, on the dark web – a shadowy place, where sickening criminality was free to burgeon under the cover of anonymity. Three men, all very different, each unknown to each other in the real world, shared a depraved common interest online, swapping and facilitating the sharing of thousands of sick images and video content of children. The men that we’re talking about here were very much part of a team – a staff that you would expect to see within any business – that provided a platform and facilitated a community of pedophiles to encourage the abuse of children all over the world.
