This blog post is in memory of Jacob Baudek.
Pastor Adam my son in law was able to go down to Mayer to visit and pray with
the family who lost their little 6 year old in the Agua Fria River Friday night.
Hikers found Jacob Baudek’s body yesterday. Jacob’s father manages the YMCA Hunt club in Mayer.
This is a very sad situation as told by to me by Adam. Dave, Jacob’s father was on top of his truck fighting to save his family for two hours.
When the storm hit, Jacob wasn’t feeling well because of a 103 fever with seizures and his family decided to take him to a doctor. As they were driving along Hwy. 69 near I-17, their truck was suddenly surrounded by surging floodwater.
If you have been to the YMCA hunt club you will recognize this section of road. You drive through the Agua Fria wash to get to the hunt club.
The boy’s mother and sister were also swept by the current, but managed to get to safety.
Today, our church family lifted the hurting and grieving family in prayer and will continue to minister in whatever ways we can.
