Moment Baseball Player Cradles Dying Boy In His Arms Makes The World Cry

For nine-year-old Kaiser Carlile, there was nothing more exciting than baseball. He enjoyed being on the field as a bat boy for his local amateur baseball team. On August 2nd, during a National Baseball Congress World Series game in Wichita KS, Kaiser was standing outside the dugout, waving at the crowd, when he was struck on the head by a practice swing. He died on Sunday.

Kaiser, who was wearing a helmet when he was hit, collapsed and never regained consciousness. This newly-released photograph shows the moment a baseball player cradled the dying nine-year-old in his arms after he was fatally hit in the head.
