Teen miraculously survives bear attack after brother rescues him: 'A blessing'




A 15-year-old boy in Arizona was saved by his brother after a black bear attacked him in a bunkhouse last week.Carol Hawkins, the mother of attack victim Brigham Hawkins, spoke with FOX 10 Phoenix about the traumatic incident. According to the Arizona Fish & Game Department, the attack took place on Thursday.The incident happened while the teenager was watching television in the family’s bunkhouse in Alpine, Arizona. The rest of the family was in a cabin twenty feet away, according to FOX 10.”The bear came into the cabin and from behind the couch, from what we were piecing together, swatted at him and scratched his face,” Carol explained.DISABLED VETERAN WHO SURVIVED ATTACK BY GRIZZLY BEAR RECALLS WHEN INSTINCTS KICKED INBrigham’s 18-year-old brother, Parker, heard the commotion and rushed to the bunkhouse. The mother told FOX 10 that, since Brigham has a rare genetic disorder, his siblings are used to looking out for him.”He started screaming but [Parker] could barely hear him, so he went to go check on him and he thought it was a dog. He thought it was a really large dog,” Carol explained.When Parker arrived, the three-year-old bear suddenly diverted its attention to the older brother.SURPRISE GRIZZLY ATTACK PROMPTS CLOSURE OF A MOUNTAIN IN GRAND TETON”When he got there, the bear turned around and saw him and started chasing him,” Carol added.Brigham’s dad helped him escape while Parker distracted the bear.

Grayson Murray's parents confirm he 'took his own life'




This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988 or 1-800-273-TALK (8255).The sports world was shaken up on Saturday when PGA Tour golfer Grayson Murray died at the age of 30.The two-time PGA Tour winner had withdrawn from the Charles Schwab Challenge on Friday, two holes shy of completing his second round, citing an illness – he had been five-over on the day and three-straight bogeys, and +3 in the tournament.Murray’s parents, in breaking their silence on Sunday, confirmed that Murray died of suicide.CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM”We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone.

By us, his brother Cameron, his sister Erica, all of his extended family, by his friends, by his fellow players and – it seems – by many of you who are reading this.

Aid starts entering Gaza through land after US ‘floating pier’ damaged by weather

Aid starts entering Gaza through land after US ‘floating pier’ damaged by weather




Aid began flowing into the Gaza Strip from southern Israel on Sunday, after a U.S.-made “floating pier” on the Mediterranean Sea was damaged by weather.The new aid deployment is flowing through southern Israel due to disagreements with Egypt. The IDF has taken over the Gaza side of the Rafah crossing, which has typically been used for transporting aid throughout the conflict.Egypt closed its side of the border when Israel took control of the Gazan side of the crossing, and says it will not reopen it until Palestinians are granted control.Hundreds of aid trucks traveled through Israel’s Kerem Shalom crossing this weekend, but United Nations workers say they have had difficulty accessing the aid due to heavy fighting nearby.The aid has become even more vital thanks to damage to the U.S.-built “floating pier” on Gaza’s coast. Choppy seas detached four vessels that had been stabilizing the pier this weekend.US MILITARY CONSTRUCTS HULKING METAL PIER AMID BIDEN’S $320 MILLION GAMBLE TO GET AID INTO GAZATwo of the boats floated northward and landed on a beach in Ashdod, Israel, while the two others remain anchored at the beach near the pier, according to the Wall Street Journal.BIDEN’S VISION FOR A PALESTINIAN STATE DOOMED, EXPERTS SAY: ‘AN EXPLICIT RECOGNITION OF HAMAS'”Efforts to recover the vessels are under way with assistance from the Israeli Navy,” U.S. Central Command said.The U.S. spent roughly $320 million constructing the pier, which has been a conduit for aid from the U.S. and other countries. While the pier has been used to transfer roughly 569 metric tons of aid into Gaza, none of that aid had been delivered to Palestinians as of last week, the Pentagon confirmed.Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder, who serves as Pentagon press secretary, confirmed the aid delay in a statement to reporters on Tuesday.Roughly 1,000 U.S. soldiers have been engaged in the effort to build the pier. Both the U.S. and Israel have emphasized that no U.S. troops have entered Gaza during the operation, but three U.S. troops were injured in accidents during operations on the pier over the past week.GROWING CONTROVERSY OVER BIDEN’S GAZA PIER FUELS CONCERNS OVER COST, SECURITYThe U.S. says the pier remains mostly operational despite the damage sustained this weekend. The Israeli navy is assisting in efforts to recover the two vessels that washed ashore in Ashdod, the Journal reported.

Texas state senator criticizes Abbott as ‘piece of s–t’ for not publicly mentioning Uvalde shooting

Texas state senator criticizes Abbott as 'piece of s--t' for not publicly mentioning Uvalde shooting




A Texas state senator called out Republican Gov. Greg Abbott for failing to publicly acknowledge the two-year anniversary of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.Friday was the two-year anniversary since the shooting at Robb Elementary School, where an 18-year-old gunman killed 19 students and two teachers.The shooting was not mentioned in the governor’s social media accounts or his office’s press releases.State Sen. Roland Gutierrez, a Democrat representing Uvalde, sounded off Saturday morning over the governor’s failure to mention that tragic day.UVALDE MASS SHOOTING VICTIMS’ FAMILIES SUING META, GUN MANUFACTURER AND VIDEO GAME MAKER”Not once did @GregAbbott_TX mention Uvalde yesterday,” Gutierrez wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “The second anniversary of the worst school shooting in Texas history and the governor doesn’t say a word about it. What a piece of s–t.”After the gunman entered the school on May 24, 2022, law enforcement waited more than an hour to confront and kill the suspect.The victims’ family members recently filed a lawsuit against state law enforcement over the failed response to the shooting, according to Fox 4. The lawsuit claims troopers did not follow their training by waiting before confronting the shooter.TEXAS OFFICIALS: UVALDE SHOOTING REPORT REVEALS ‘MULTIPLE SYSTEMIC FAILURES’A Justice Department report also said victims’ lives could have been saved if the response had not been delayed.A criminal investigation into the law enforcement response remains underway. Some law enforcement officials have been called to testify in front of a grand jury in Uvalde County.Since the shooting, Texas under Abbott has put safety measures in place, including laws requiring every school district to have an armed guard on each campus.

Mount Everest climbing duo vanishes from notorious area of world’s tallest peak

Mount Everest climbing duo vanishes from notorious area of world's tallest peak




A British climber and his guide who reached the summit of Mount Everest have been missing since Tuesday, and are presumed dead in the mountain’s so-called “death zone,” while attempting to descend.The “death zone” is the area on the mountain above 26,000 feet, where low oxygen levels can cause impaired judgment, severe altitude sickness and death after an extended period of time. The mountain’s summit is 29,032 feet. “On May 21st, at 4:40 AM, Daniel Paterson successfully reached the summit of Mount Everest — a monumental achievement and a testament to his strength and determination,” his partner, Becks Woodhead, wrote on a crowdfunding page this week. “Tragically, during his descent, Daniel went missing, and there has been no contact or sighting of him since.” Paterson, 39, and his guide Pastenji Sherpa, 23, were hit by falling ice as they descended when a cornice collapsed, according to BBC News. NEPALI GUIDE, UK MOUNTAINEER SURPASS THEIR OWN RECORDS FOR MOST CLIMBS OF MOUNT EVERESTThe two had been climbing with a group organized by 8K Expeditions. The company said on Instagram on Friday: “Despite exhaustive search efforts, we regret to confirm that Daniel and Pastenji were unable to be recovered from following incident.”8K Expeditions told BBC that it wouldn’t be “possible” to find the men alive any longer. The company said Paterson had “uplifting positivity and strong determination” and had previously summited the Nepalese mountains Amadablam and Island Peak. They described Sherpa as a “dedicated climber” with a “warm spirit” who had summited Everest twice. “We remember and honor their enduring spirits and extend our deepest condolences to their grieving families. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this profoundly difficult time,” the company added. 3 MOUNT EVEREST CLIMBERS GO MISSING AFTER FALLING INTO DEEP CREVASSETheir disappearances come as videos have shown overcrowding on the mountain with long lines of climbers waiting their turn to reach the summit amid changing weather conditions. April and May are considered some of the best months to climb Mount Everest because of the weather. Not including Paterson and Sherpa, three people have died on the mountain this year, and 18 perished last year, Nepalese officials said, according to the New York Times. Of the more than 300 people who have died on the mountain in total, around 200 bodies still remain because bringing them down the mountain would be too difficult, the Times reported. A Kenyan climber was found dead this week after going missing, and two Romanian and British climbers and their guide also died this week, BBC reported. Paterson had documented his Everest journey on Instagram, calling climbing the mountain a dream of his for most of his life.”One thing I can guarantee is that I won’t be quitting. I don’t get scared much in life, but the thing that scares me the most is not achieving this,” he wrote. Woodhead added of Paterson, who lives in Wakefield, England, “Dan is not just an adventurer; he is a beloved son, brother, partner, friend and a proud joint owner of Wakefield Crossfit. He is known for his adventurous spirit, his kindness, and his unwavering dedication to helping others.” CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPPaterson had also been raising money for the family of CrossFit member who died of cancer.

PA GOP Senate candidate McCormick completes 67-county tour, trades lying accusations with Casey

PA GOP Senate candidate McCormick completes 67-county tour, trades lying accusations with Casey




Dave McCormick, the Republican challenger for Pennsylvania’s coveted U.S. Senate seat, completed a 67-county tour of the Keystone State on Friday. It’s not quite the “full Grassley” of presidential politics, when candidates visit all 99 counties ahead of the Iowa caucuses, but with President Biden and former President Trump in a dead-heat for Pennsylvania and the Senate majority in the balance, every point and all 67 counties count.After 42,000 miles. McCormick celebrated the last of his 345 stops at an Italian restaurant in Matamoras. In an event on the Friday afternoon before Memorial Day Weekend, he delivered a stump speech to about 30 supporters over pizza and soda.”I was so excited to be able to plant the flag today because it’s just the demonstrated commitment to being across our great Commonwealth and seeing people in all these communities,” McCormick told Fox News in an exclusive interview after his Pike County stop on Friday. “I think you campaign the way you’re going to be a senator, and I’m going to be a senator that represents all of Pennsylvania, not just the urban areas.” McCormick’s opponent Democratic Sen. Bob Casey has a two-point edge in the race, according to polling conducted April 28 to May 9 by The New York Times, Siena College and The Philadelphia Inquirer.McCormick’s campaign milestone comes as a Broad + Liberty report accused Casey of lying about visiting all 67 counties each year. The report used X posts as a metric to tally Casey’s campaign stops across the commonwealth, concluding that Casey only visited 39 counties since January 2023. Based on internal documents obtained by Fox News, Casey visited all 67 counties in 2022, but fell short at 63 counties in 2023. CRUCIAL SENATE SHOWDOWN IN KEY BATTLEGROUND STATE OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY AS CASEY, MCCORMICK WIN PRIMARIESA spokesperson for Casey emphasized the importance of quality visits over the quantity of visits and said not all of these campaign stops are posted online. His Senate office tracks the first and last visit to each county every year. For instance, in 2023, Casey visited Lehigh County for the first time on Jan. 6, 2023, and his last visit was on Dec. 21, 2023. And that’s not to say he didn’t visit Lehigh County several times in between. McCormick isn’t convinced.”He said that he visits every county every year,” McCormick told Fox News on Friday. “So, you know, he can show you the evidence. We don’t see any evidence that he visits every county every year.”To McCormick, the county controversy goes beyond hearsay. He says it’s about showing up for Pennsylvanians all across the commonwealth.”It’s a number of cases where Bob Casey says one thing and does another,” McCormick told Fox News on Friday. “He stands up and says his and Biden’s policies are going to reduce inflation. And then in a room, he gets caught on tape saying, hey, listen, there’s nothing we can do to lower prices. Or he says he’s for policies that ensure that we source from American industries, and then he votes and waives exceptions on them because he and Biden’s policies on EVs aren’t adequately supported by U.S. industry. So time and again, Bob Casey says one thing and does another, and so I don’t think he’s been forthright with the people of Pennsylvania.”McCormick, endorsed by former President Donald Trump, consistently ties Casey to President Biden. A day after accepting the Republican nomination, McCormick released an ad slamming Casey for voting with Biden “98 percent” of the time. “Bob Casey’s lack of visiting these counties, his lie on this is also representative of why he’s out of step with most Pennsylvanians, and that’s why most Pennsylvanians can’t name a single thing that Bob Casey’s accomplished,” McCormick continued last Friday. “They can’t believe that he’s voted 98% of the time with Joe Biden. So the connection I’m making is the lie on the county visits with his positions being increasingly liberal, increasingly bowing to the progressive left and increasingly out of step with Pennsylvania. That’s the connection.”REPUBLICAN SENATE CANDIDATE IN CRUCIAL RACE IN KEY BATTLEGROUND STATE REPORTS $6.2 MILLION HAULJust ahead of the Pennsylvania primary, McCormick was the Senate candidate dodging accusations of lying. A New York Times report found that McCormick embellished details about his upbringing, particularly about growing up on a Pennsylvania farm. McCormick has denied these allegations, his background emblematic of his Senate campaign and a fixture of that stump speech. “My folks had a family farm,” McCormick told the group in Pike County Friday. “They lived in town in Bloomsburg. My dad worked at the college, but I baled hay. I trimmed Christmas trees. I was a busboy at the hotel. I was a paperboy with two paper routes. I played football. I wrestled. I hunted.”Pennsylvania Democrats have seized every opportunity to call McCormick a liar, accusing McCormick of jet-setting into Pennsylvania to campaign and nicknaming him “Connecticut Dave” for renting a home in Westport, Connecticut. “I don’t think he’s been truthful to people about living in Pennsylvania. He lives in Connecticut in a $16 million house,” Casey told Fox News in an exclusive interview in April. “I think this is kind of a pattern of falsely representing something so basic about where you live and where you once lived. I don’t know why he would make reference to his upbringing in a way that wasn’t fully truthful. He has a lot to be proud of. He’s achieved a lot in his life, and he should talk about what he’s achieved instead of trying to create this image that I guess at one point he made reference to being a farmer, which makes no sense at all. I just think you should be truthful and honest with the people that you’re seeking to represent.”When pressed by Fox News why Pennsylvania voters should trust McCormick’s word over Casey’s, McCormick said he’s not one to shy away from criticism. He’s urging Casey to do the same. “I’m a Pennsylvanian, a seventh generation Pennsylvanian,” McCormick said. “I grew up here. I left here to go to the military, to go to West Point, and then to serve in combat. I came back and created jobs, and that’s the background and experience of leadership I’m going to run on. Bob Casey should answer this question. He was clearly caught in a lie. I’m happy to answer any question. And, you know, politics is a contact sport, but I’ll answer any question forthrightly about my background and why I think I’ll serve the people of Pennsylvania well.”Meanwhile, Casey’s campaign is trying to flip the script on McCormick. “Senator Casey is known for his integrity and what he’s delivered for the Commonwealth, meanwhile Connecticut mega-millionaire David McCormick has been lying about everything from where he lives, to the details of his upbringing, to his record of investing millions in Chinese military companies,” Kate Smart, a spokesperson for Casey for Senate, shared with Fox News on Friday. With five months until the general election, there’s no sign of the mudslinging (or the campaign bus) slowing down for these Pennsylvania candidates.

Michelin-starred chef to bring food and fine dining to new heights: in space

Michelin-starred chef to bring food and fine dining to new heights: in space




A Michelin-starred chef is set to bring a new meaning to “elevating” a dish in 2025 — by serving a meal on the edge of space. Rasmus Munk, 33, of Denmark, has partnered with the Florida-based space tourism startup Space Perspective and will bring fine dining to a place it has never been before: 100,000 feet above sea level.Munk and six guests will board Space Perspective’s “Spaceship Neptune” for what is sure to be a literal and figurative out-of-this-world “immersive dining experience,” the Associated Press reported.COTTAGE CHEESE BAKING HACK BLOWS UP ON TIKTOK: ‘BEST IDEA I’VE EVER SEEN’ The menu will be “inspired by the impact of space innovation.” It will be cooked aboard Spaceship Neptune, said the AP; Munk will serve it himself. “We want to tell stories through the food,” Munk told the Associated Press. “We … want to talk and highlight some of the research that’s been done through the last 60 years.”Being aboard Spaceship Neptune “will make an even stronger impact” on the diners, he added. The menu will include “glow-in-dark stars made from aerogel and jellyfish protein,” said the Associated Press. It may also include “an edible piece of space junk from a satellite,” said Munk. CELEBRITY CHEF ANNE BURRELL SHARES HER ‘KILLER TURKEY BURGER’ FOR HOLIDAY WEEKENDClimate change will also be a topic of conversation aboard Spaceship Neptune, said Munk. “And then, we want to talk about some of the things [happening] on the planet,” he told the AP. “From deforestation to temperatures rising and the garbage in our seas.”Munk is the chef and co-owner of Alchemist, located in Denmark. The restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars in 2020, and in 2023 it ranked as the fifth-best restaurant in the world, the AP said. The entire meal and journey will last about six hours, Space Perspective told the Associated Press.2023 SPACE STORIES: A REVIEW OF THE GIANT LEAPS MANKIND MADE IN THE PAST YEARThe Spaceship Neptune’s journey will take two hours to ascend to 100,000 feet above sea level, where it will remain for two hours. The descent will also then take two hours, says its website. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY, JUNE 18, 1983, ASTRONAUT SALLY RIDE BECOMES FIRST AMERICAN WOMAN IN SPACEWhile extremely high up, Spaceship Neptune does not technically reach “space,” the AP noted. “Space” is defined as the “Karman line” at the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere, which is 62 miles from Earth. Tickets for the experience will cost $495,000 — more than triple the normal $125,000 price for a ride on Spaceship Neptune. Space Perspective intends on beginning commercial flights of Spaceship Neptune in 2025, says its website.The capsule has a capacity of “Eight Explorers and the Space Perspective Captain,” the site noted.Unlike a rocket, Spaceship Neptune is powered by a giant “SpaceBalloon” that is 18,000,000 cubic feet when fully expanded. “That means if a football stadium could fly, it would be able to float around inside a fully-inflated SpaceBalloon,” it also said. OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD SPACE HOTEL, VOYAGER STATION COULD BE OPERATIONAL FOR VACATIONS SOONER THAN YOU THINK The balloon is inflated with hydrogen. Prior to launch, the “SpaceBalloon” will stand more than 700 feet tall, said Space Perspective. Prospective passengers also should not worry about the “SpaceBalloon” popping, the Space Perspectives website said.”The SpaceBalloon is a well-tested technology that has been flown by NASA and other governments over 1,000 times, so it is inherently safe.” As it is a “zero-pressure” balloon, it cannot pop. “In the unlikely event there is a hole in the balloon envelope, it simply descends very slowly and floats down to a safe landing.”If, somehow, something were to go wrong, Spaceship Neptune is equipped with a “Reserve Descent System between the capsule and the balloon,” said Space Perspective.This is a parachute system similar to those used to return payloads and other capsules from space to earth, they said.CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTERFox News Digital reached out to Space Perspective for further comment. The Associated Press contributed reporting.For more Lifestyle articles, visit www.foxnews.com/lifestyle.

Celebrity chef Anne Burrell shares her ‘Killer Turkey Burger’ recipe for holiday weekend

Celebrity chef Anne Burrell shares her 'Killer Turkey Burger' recipe for holiday weekend




This Memorial Day weekend and beyond, try a delicious turkey burger recipe courtesy of celebrity chef Anne Burrell.The chef, Food Network personality and former instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education told Fox News Digital this week, “This recipe was invented out of pure necessity when I was visiting my sister.”She said, “I had just gotten off a plane and dropped my bags at her house when she said, ‘We’re having turkey burgers for dinner … Can you make them?'”GUACAMOLE VS. HUMMUS: IS ONE ‘BETTER’ FOR YOU THAN THE OTHER?Continued Burrell, “I looked in her pantry and just grabbed some stuff. She had a can of water chestnuts hanging out in there, so I decided to put a crunchy little twist on dinner. I added some soy, sautéed onion, ginger, garlic and cilantro to the mix — and voilà! The killer turkey burger was born.”Dig right into this fun recipe for a special weekend meal — or for any occasion with family and friends this summer. Makes 4 servingsPrep time: 50 minutes (active prep time: 45 minutes)Extra-virgin olive oil, for coating the pan1 onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice Kosher salt 2 cloves garlic, smashed and finely chopped 1½ pounds ground turkey One 8-ounce can water chestnuts, coarsely chopped (not too fine; they add great texture) ¼ cup soy sauce, plus more if needed½ bunch of fresh cilantro, leaves finely chopped 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated 2 tablespoons sambal oelek or Asian chili paste, optional (but recommended) ½ cup mayonnaise2 teaspoons sambal oelek 4 burger buns (I like the seeded ones!) 4 slices American or cheddar cheese (American melts better) 4 slices beefsteak tomatoes 4 slices red onion 4 leaves butter lettuce SPINACH VS. KALE: WHICH IS ‘BETTER’ FOR YOU? NUTRITIONISTS SETTLE THE GREAT DEBATE1. For the turkey burgers: Coat a large sauté pan with olive oil and toss in the onion. Season with salt and bring the pan to medium heat. Cook the onion until soft and very aromatic, 7-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool.2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, water chestnuts, soy sauce, cilantro, ginger, sambal if using and the cooked onions and garlic. (Note: Save the onion pan to cook the burgers in later!) Add ¼ to ½ cup water to the mix — this will keep the burgers really moist! Use your hands to squish the mixture until everything is really well combined.KETCHUP VS. MUSTARD: WHICH IS ‘BETTER’ FOR YOU? EXPERTS CHIME IN ON THE DEBATE3. Make, cook and eat a little tester patty to be sure the turkey is really delicious. If the seasoning isn’t just right, add a little more soy or a sprinkey-dink of salt. When you’re confident the burger mix is perfectly seasoned, form it into 4 equal patties.4. With a paper towel, wipe out the sauté pan you used to cook the onion, coat the pan with fresh olive oil and bring it to medium-high heat. Add the burgers, being sure not to crowd the pan — if you need to work in batches, knock yourself out. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTERCook the burgers for 5-6 minutes on each side. The burgers should be browned and cooked through when done. (If working in batches, keep the first batch warm in the oven at 200 degrees F while cooking the second batch.)5. For the toppings: Mix together the mayo and sambal oelek in a small bowl. Toast the burger buns and top with the burgers. Garnish as desired with the cheese, tomato, red onion, lettuce and spicy mayo.Wrote a commenter online about the burgers, “These really were a delicious new twist on a classic! I made the recipe as written. The water chestnuts really do add fantastic crunch and the burger as a whole has great flavor.””Killer Turkey Burger” recipe by Anne Burrell.

A Pennsylvania man arrived at the Pittsburgh airport Friday night after he was released from custody on the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), where he had been detained for having ammunition in his luggage.Bryan Hagerich — a 39-year-old husband, father of two and former professional baseball player — is one of five Americans arrested and detained on the islands since February for having stray ammunition in their luggage, a crime punishable up to 12 years on the islands.The other detained Americans are Ryan Watson, 40, of Oklahoma; Sharitta Grier, 45, of Florida; Tyler Wenrich, 31, of Virginia; and Michael Lee Evans, 72, of Texas.”Its just amazing how, just in the matter of 12 hours, looking at 12 years to now,” Hagerich told reporters Friday night after he landed in Pittsburgh. “My biggest concern is coaching my kids’ baseball games tomorrow, and that is such a relief.”PENNSYLVANIA DAD DETAINED IN TURKS AND CAICOS TO RETURN HOME AFTER PAYING FINE FOR HAVING AMMO IN LUGGAGEHagerich said his detention was the “hardest time of my life” being separated from his family.”As a father, as a provider, and to not be that figure in my family’s life, it’s a very tough pill to swallow,” he said.He said the conditions of his detention were “tough” and the “darkest days” of his life. And while he said he is thankful to be home, he stressed that there are other Americans still in detention on the islands who he said “will be home soon.”A Turks and Caicos judge issued a suspended 52-month sentence Friday morning to Hagerich, who pleaded guilty to possessing ammunition on the islands. He was also ordered to pay a $6,500 fine.Hagerich told Fox News Digital on Thursday that he and his attorneys “made a very, very strong case” in his defense after he pleaded guilty.Several lawmakers applauded the move to release Hagerich from custody on the islands, allowing him to return to his family in Pennsylvania. A bipartisan congressional delegation had visited TCI on Monday to urge government leaders to release the Americans detained for having stray ammunition in their bags.AMERICANS ARRESTED IN TURKS AND CAICOS BUNK, PRAY TOGETHER WHILE AWAITING SENTENCINGS: ‘A BIG FAMILY’”This is great news,” U.S. Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., said in a statement. “Bryan is coming home to his family. It was an honor to meet Bryan and the other detained Americans in TCI this week.””When we met with TCI officials a few days ago, they made clear they wanted this situation resolved,” Fetterman continued. “They recognized that Bryan and the other detained Americans are not gunrunners — they are just people who made a mistake. I’m grateful that the judge recognized that the right thing to do was to send Bryan home. I’m also grateful to the U.S. State Department which has been a critical partner in bringing Bryan home.”Fetterman also said he is hopeful that TCI expedites the other cases of detained Americans so they can also be released soon and return to their families.Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Guy Reschenthaler said while he is “overjoyed” to see Hagerich is returning to Pennsylvania and reuniting with his wife and children, “this terrifying situation should have never happened to him, or the four other Americans still awaiting sentencing.””As the Turks and Caicos government works to handle future cases, the British territory must ensure the safety and wellbeing of U.S. tourists. I won’t rest until Americans can once again set foot on their islands without putting their livelihoods at risk,” the congressional representative said.FLORIDA WOMAN BECOMES 5TH AMERICAN DETAINED IN TURKS AND CAICOS FOR CARRYING AMMOHagerich said Friday night he is “forever grateful” for lawmakers’ efforts advocating for his release, including the delegation that visited the islands.”Never in a thousand years did I expect that kind of support,” Hagerich said.The cases of the five Americans have slight differences, but all five were arrested while traveling home after security detected ammunition in their luggage.Hagerich had stray ammunition from a previous hunting trip in one of the compartments of a large suitcase his family had loaded their belongings into for a family vacation. Watson had stray ammunition, also left over from a hunting trip, in the lining of his carry-on bag. Grier had stray bullets in the lining of her bag after she recently purchased a firearm for her own protection.Wenrich has similarly said he had no intention of bringing bullets onto the islands and had no idea he had two bullets in his travel backpack until security found them.Fox News’ Audrey Conklin contributed to this report.

J6 rioter calls Trump-appointed judge ‘worst mistake of 2016’ during sentencing

J6 rioter calls Trump-appointed judge 'worst mistake of 2016' during sentencing




A New Jersey electrician who repeatedly attacked police officers during the Jan. 6, 2021, siege at the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Friday to 12 years in prison by a judge who called him “a menace to our society.”Christopher Joseph Quaglin argued with and insulted U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden before and after the judge handed him one of the longest prison sentences among hundreds of Capitol riot cases.”You’re Trump’s worst mistake of 2016,” Quaglin told McFadden, who was nominated to the court by then-President Donald Trump in 2017.J6 RIOTER WHO STRUCK OFFICER WITH POLE SENTENCED TO 6 YEARS IN PRISONQuaglin, 38, joined the mob of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol. He injured a police officer when he choked and tackled him to the ground. Quaglin assaulted other officers with stolen police shields, metal bike racks and pepper spray. He clashed with police for roughly three hours while wearing an American flag-themed “Make America Great Again” sweatshirt.”What an outrage. What a disgrace,” the judge said.Quaglin complained about his jail conditions and pushed conspiracy theories about the Jan. 6 siege during his rambling remarks in the courtroom. He also took issue with labeling the Jan. 6 attack as an insurrection.”If I wanted to bring an insurrection, I would have brought a long gun,” he said.The judge, who cut him off after several minutes, told Quaglin that his combative remarks were a “really bad idea” before sentencing.”It’s a kangaroo court,” Quaglin responded.Prosecutors urged the judge to sentence Quaglin to 14 years in prison. They said he was one of the most violent rioters on Jan. 6, when a mob of Donald Trump supporters disrupted the joint session of Congress for certifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory.The judge convicted Quaglin of six separate assaults on police. Prosecutors say he struck or pushed another dozen officers.”Quaglin understood the constitutional significance of January 6, and intended to disrupt Congress’ certification of the 2020 election by any means necessary, including by viciously assaulting police officers for hours,” prosecutors wrote.Approximately 1,400 people have been charged with Capitol riot-related federal crimes. Nearly 900 of them have been sentenced, with roughly two-thirds receiving a term of imprisonment ranging from a few days to 22 years. Only seven Capitol riot defendants have received a longer prison sentence than Quaglin, according to an Associated Press review of court records.McFadden convicted Quaglin of 14 counts last July after a “stipulated bench trial,” which means the judge decided the case without a jury and based on facts that both sides agreed to before the trial. Such trials allow defendants to maintain appeal rights that are waived by a guilty plea.Quaglin traveled from his home in North Brunswick, New Jersey, to attend then-President Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally near the White House on Jan. 6. Leaving the rally early, Quaglin recorded a video of himself as he marched to the Capitol wearing a helmet, a gas mask and a backpack.After storming barricades near Peace Circle, Quaglin repeatedly attacked officers who were trying to hold off the mob. Capitol Police Sgt. Troy Robinson was injured when Quaglin grabbed him by the neck and tackled him to the ground.”Quaglin’s attack ignited a short brawl,” prosecutors wrote. “With Quaglin on top of Sergeant Robinson, other rioters came to Quaglin’s assistance and chaos broke loose.”Quaglin “waged a relentless siege” as he joined other rioters in attacking police in a tunnel on the Capitol’s Lower West Terrace, prosecutors said. He helped another rioter steal a shield from an officer. He pepper sprayed several officers in the face. And he joined the mob’s collective “heave ho” push against a police line.”Quaglin was part of some of the most gruesome attacks in the tunnel as he worked with other rioters to ensure that officers were under constant attack,” prosecutors wrote.Quaglin later celebrated and bragged about his participation in the riot.”It was a great time. I got bumps and bruises. And we’re having a good time,” he said in a video posted on social media.Defense attorney Kristi Fulnecky claims Quaglin has received inadequate medical treatment while jailed for the past three years. Fulnecky also said one of Quaglin’s former attorneys coerced him into accepting a stipulated bench trial instead of a contested trial.McFadden told Quaglin that his actions on Jan. 6 were “shocking and lawless.””January 6th is not simply an anomaly for you,” the judge said. “You’ve allowed it to define you.”

German Chancellor Scholz warns next European Commission president against courting far-right support

German Chancellor Scholz warns next European Commission president against courting far-right support




German Chancellor Olaf Scholz waded into the European election campaign on Friday by warning that the next president of the European Commission should not seek support from far-right parties hoping to make big gains in next month’s vote.Left-leaning parties across Europe have been heaping pressure on their mainstream conservative and liberal counterparts to rule out cooperation with far-right parties after the June 6-9 elections to the European Parliament.ISRAEL SLAMS GERMAN GOVERNMENT’S VOW TO ARREST PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU OVER ICC WARRANTBut a big swing to the right could make it hard for the next president of the commission — who will need approval from a majority in the new pan-European parliament — to lead the 27-bloc effectively with only the support of its more traditional political groupings.”When the next European Commission is formed, it must not rest on the support of a parliamentary majority that also needs the support of right-wing extremists,” Scholz said after talks with his Portuguese counterpart Luis Montenegro in Berlin.”I am very saddened by the ambiguity of some of the political statements that we have heard recently. But I am clear about this, and it will only be possible to establish a presidency of the European Commission that rests on the support of the traditional parties,” Scholz said.”Anything else would be a mistake for the future of Europe,” he added.Scholz, a Social Democrat who heads an unpopular progressive coalition in Germany, did not specify which statements he was referring to.However, his words are likely to be seen as a warning to the current Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, a German conservative who is expected to seek a second term.Von der Leyen is a member of the European People’s Party group in the European Parliament. The center-right umbrella grouping has long held sway in Brussels in tandem with the center-left Socialists. But with the electoral landscape shifting, she has refused to rule out working with some members of parties further to the right.Last month, von der Leyen suggested she was open to working with the European Conservatives and Reformists group, or ECR, one of two far-right groupings in the parliament.Leading members of the ECR, which largely opposes further European Union integration and enlargement and takes a tough line against immigration and environmental protection policies, include Poland’s Law and Justice party and the Brothers of Italy party of Italian Premier Georgia Meloni.Pressed to distance herself from the far-right during a debate among leading candidates last month in the Netherlands, von der Leyen said possible scenarios would depend on “how the composition of the parliament is, and who is in what group.”With the elections less that two weeks away, political alliances that could shape the future direction of EU policy are already shifting.On Thursday, a right-wing group in the European Parliament kicked out the far-right Alternative for Germany party, or AfD, over a string of scandals involving its leading candidate, including remarks seen as playing down Nazi crimes in World War II and the arrest of one of his assistants on suspicion of spying for China.On Friday, one of its nine European lawmakers, Sylvia Limmer, quit the AfD, saying its leadership had become too authoritarian.Scholz, whose party trails both the AfD and center-right rivals in opinion polls, said the rise of the far-right reflected uncertainty caused by rapid economic change, new technologies and climate change.He argued that developed countries could counter the political trend by embracing a modernizing, inclusive agenda.”What helps are two things: the first is confidence that the future will turn out well, also for our countries, that we are at the forefront; and confidence that this is not just for a few in our countries, but for the great mass of the population,” he said.

Trial set for UK men accused of collaborating with Hong Kong intelligence service

Trial set for UK men accused of collaborating with Hong Kong intelligence service




The office manager of the Hong Kong trade office in London and another man will go on trial in February for allegedly helping Hong Kong authorities gather intelligence in the U.K. a judge said Friday.Chung Biu Yuen, 63, and Chi Leung Peter Wai, 38, appeared at London’s Central Criminal Court for a preliminary hearing, charged with agreeing to undertake information gathering, surveillance and acts of deception that were likely to materially assist a foreign intelligence service between December 2023 and May 2.Hong Kong authorities have confirmed that Yuen was the office manager of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London.UK MAN CHARGED WITH COLLABORATING WITH HONG KONG INTELLIGENCE SERVICE FOUND DEADA third suspect, Briton Matthew Trickett, was also charged in the case, but he was found dead Sunday in a park under what police said were unexplained circumstances.Prosecutor Kashif Malik said during an earlier hearing that Trickett, reportedly a U.K. immigration enforcement officer and a former Royal Marine, had attempted suicide after being charged. He was also the director of a security company.Justice Jeremy Baker set a trial date for Feb. 10, set to last for about five weeks. The judge said the men were granted bail on condition that they observe a set curfew and other restrictions.The three men were charged under Britain’s National Security Act after an investigation by the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command. Prosecutors allege that the suspects also forced entry into a U.K. residential address.3 MEN CHARGED IN UK FOR ALLEGEDLY COLLABORATING WITH HONG KONG INTELLIGENCE SERVICEThey were arrested earlier this month in London and Yorkshire in northern England by counterterrorism police, using provisions of a new law that allows suspects in national security and espionage cases to be detained without warrant.The case drew strong criticism from officials in Beijing and Hong Kong, a former British colony that returned to Chinese control in 1997.Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said Friday that the charges were “an act of political manipulation in the name of national security.””It seriously infringed on the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese nationals in the U.K., gravely undermined China-U.K. relations, seriously violated the principles of international law and the basic norms of international relations and badly harmed the image of the U.K.,” he told reporters.In Hong Kong, a government spokesman said the city’s Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Algernon Yau, met with Britain’s deputy consul-general in Hong Kong on Thursday to reiterate concerns about the case.Yau urged British authorities to handle the matter fairly and ensure the normal operation of the Hong Kong trade office in London.All of the Hong Kong trade office’s activities have been conducted in accordance with the law, the city’s government added.

Bodies of three hostages taken by Hamas during attack on Israel recovered from Gaza




Three more bodies of hostages taken by Hamas terrorists during the group’s unprecedented Oct. 7 attack on Israel were recovered overnight in Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces said on Friday.The recovery took place during an operation in Jabalia, a city in northern Gaza.The hostages were identified by the IDF as 42-year-old Hanan Yablonka, 30-year-old Orión Hernández Radoux and 59-year-old Michel Nisenbaum. All three were killed near the Mefalsim area in southern Israel on Oct. 7, the IDF said, and were found not far from the location where bodies recovered last week were found.ISRAELI ARMY FINDS BODIES OF 3 HOSTAGES IN GAZA KILLED AT OCT. 7 MUSIC FESTIVALYablonka, who was divorced, was a father to two children, ages 12 and 9. He was with four friends in his vehicle when Hamas launched its unprecedented attack. One of the friends was found dead in the car, another was dead in a field and the last two were killed in a nearby hiding place they had found, the IDF said.Radoux, who was a father of one, was a French-Mexican citizen who was taken captive at the Nova music festival he was attending with his girlfriend, Shani Louk. Her body was one of the three found and recovered on May 17.Nisenbaum, who had lived in Israel since 1988, had two daughters and six grandchildren. He was on his way to pick up his granddaughter when he was taken hostage, according to the IDF.BODY OF ISRAELI HOSTAGE RETRIEVED OVERNIGHT DURING IDF OPERATION IN GAZAThe Hostages Families Forum Headquarters released the following statement after the recovery was announced on Friday:”The sorrowful return of Michel, Hanan, and Oryon is another heartbreak for the 125 families of the hostages, who share the pain, sorrow, and endless worry. Their return for burial provides important closure for the family members, and efforts must be made to bring all the murdered hostages back to Israel.”The recovery of their bodies is a silent but resolute reminder that the State of Israel is obligated to immediately dispatch negotiation teams with a clear demand to bring about a deal that will swiftly return all the hostages home: the living for rehabilitation and the murdered for burial.”FAMILIES OF 5 ISRAELI HOSTAGES OF HAMAS RELEASE GRAPHIC VIDEO TO PUSH FOR THEIR RELEASEIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement in Hebrew on his X account shortly after the IDF’s announcement.”Together with the citizens of Israel, my wife Sara and I bow our heads in deep sorrow, and embrace the grieving families in their difficult time. We have a national and moral duty to do everything in our power to return our abducted – the lives and the spaces – and that is what we are doing,” he wrote. “I praise the IDF forces and the security forces who acted with great courage in the heart of enemy territory, in order to return them to their families and to the grave of Israel.”French President Emmanuel Macron also shared his condolences on X since Radoux was a citizen of the European country.”I learned with immense sadness of the death of our compatriot Orión Hernández-Radoux, hostage of Hamas since October 7. I think of his family and those close to him. We are at their side. France remains more than ever committed to the release of all the hostages,” he wrote.Hamas terrorists have been holding hostages in Gaza for the past 231 days.As of Friday, the group is believed to have 125 hostages in its custody and 39 of them are considered to be dead, the IDF said.Fox News’ Yonat Friling contributed to this report.

Extremely rare “blue-eyed” cicada spotted in Chicago suburb

Extremely rare "blue-eyed" cicada spotted in Chicago suburb




Two separate families in the Chicago suburbs stumbled upon a “one in a million” blue-eyed cicada, sharing pictures of the vibrant insect.Greta Bailey told Fox News Digital that her 4-year-old son, Jack, was collecting the typically red-eyed cicada when the family first spotted the bright-eyed insect in their Wheaton, Illinois backyard.Bailey told FOX 59 that she did not realize that blue-eyed cicadas existed – until one wandered into her backyard.”I thought it was cool and unique and had not heard that blue-eyed cicadas even existed,” Bailey said.BILLIONS OF NOISY CICADAS EMERGE FROM SLUMBER ACROSS THE USBailey said that her family enjoyed taking pictures of the cicada before they released it back into the wild.Images from Bailey showed the small and surprisingly blue-eyed cicada being held by her three children.Another woman in a Chicago suburb found a “one in a million” blue-eyed cicada while visiting a nature preserve. Kelly Simkins, who owns Merlin’s Rocking Pet Show, shared her striking find in a Facebook post, snapping a picture of the cicada’s vibrant blue eyes. THE CICADA INVASION HAS BEGUN! FIND OUT WHERE THE FLYING INSECTS ARE EMERGING”One in a million blue-eyed cicada found today at 7am,” Simkins said in the post.While the families find were rare, it is not unheard of.The blue eyes are caused by a genetic variation, said Gene Kritsky, author of “Periodical Cicadas: The Plague and the Puzzle.”Blue-eyed cicadas are indeed one in a million, Kritsky confirmed. “Of course,” he added, “there are hundreds of millions of cicadas.”
