Tyra Winters, a Rockwall, Texas high school cheerleader, saved the life of a little boy who was choking on the sidelines during the homecoming parade. 

Winters was sitting atop a homecoming float waving to the crowd when she noticed the toddler choking on a piece of candy.

“He was turning purple, so I immediately jumped off the float, I ran down to the kiddo, and I was like, ‘I got him’ and I grabbed him from the mom. I grabbed him and tilted him and I gave a good three back thrusts and he ended up spitting up,” Winters told CBS DFW. 

The child’s mother, Nicole Hornback, said that the Rockwall High Senior saved her son Clarke’s life. 

“I was sitting right next to him, I just happened to look over. There was no noise, no coughing, no breathing,” Hornback said. That’s when Winters came to the rescue. 

“She saved my baby. I commend her for being a teenager and being trained,” Hornback said. 

After Winters saved Clarke, she did what any teenager would do and ran to get “back on the float before [she] missed it, she told NBC DFW. Hornback said she never had the opportunity to properly say thank you so she wrote a message on Facebook about what happened, thanking the 17-year-old for saving her son’s life. School administrators saw the note and arranged for the two to meet at the school. 

Clarke and Winters greeted with a high five and Hornback said that she really didn’t have the words to properly express her immense gratitude. 

“The words that you would say to anyone who does something for you is ‘thank you.’ But that doesn’t seem good enough,” Hornback said.

Winters wants to be a pediatric surgeon and was trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver at her mother’s group home for foster children. Despite all of the praise she’s receiving, she said she really was just trying to help. 

“I know they’re calling me the town hero,” Winters said. “It’s super exciting to own that title. But most importantly, I’m just glad the boy is OK.” 

A round of applause for this real life hero and future doctor.

Tyla-Simone Crayton, a 15-year old home-schooled teen entrepreneur from Houston, Texas, is the CEO of Sienna Sauce. Known as the Sauce Boss, she created the recipe for the uniquely-flavored sauce when she was just 8-years old. Now, she is selling the award-winning sauce online and through multiple distributors and she earns $8,000 a month!


Tyla-Simone, who grew up in New York, has always loved the hot sauce at her favorite chicken wings spot in the city. Since the restaurant closed, she tried to replicate the taste of the sauce. She was just 8 years old then and her mother, Monique Crayton, was initially hesitant about the idea. But when she tried to serve the sauce to their friends and neighbors, it became an instant hit!

Since then, Tyla-Simone and her mom have decided to sell the sauce in bottles. Her mother also quit her job earlier this year to be more dedicated to helping her daughter, who is home-schooled, to run and manage the company.

“My sauce has the potential to be even greater than ketchup,” Tyla-Simone told SWNS. “Not only does it taste great, but it’s healthy because it is gluten-free and high-fructose corn syrup free.”

Now based in Texas, Sienna Sauce comes in three flavors: lemon pepper, spicy, and tangy. They have 22 distributors and is set to hit the supermarkets. They have now been reportedly raking in up to $8,000 a month. Tyla-Simone also hopes someday her sauce will be sold in packets at fast-food chains.

“It’s exciting and scary at times and it is stressful to balance my business and going to school,” Tyla-Simone said. “I love doing it and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. People should know that it is never too early to start.”

A Nigerian woman in Houston, Texas, has given birth to sextuplets in under 10 minutes.

Thelma Chiaka welcomed four boys and two girls on Friday morning at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas.

Having sextuplets is so rare that Chiaka beat the odds to become one in 4.7 billion in the world.

All six babies were born between 4.50am and 4.59am with weights ranging from one pound, 12 ounces to two pounds, 14 ounces.

According to the hospital, each of the babies are in a stable condition and will continue to be supervised in the advanced neonatal intensive care unit. The mother is also doing well.

While Chiaka has yet to name all of her children, the hospital revealed that she has named her two daughters Zina and Zuriel.
