More than 150 fire trucks from all around New England gave a seven year old his birthday wish last week.
Tyler Seddon, from Pascoag, Rhode Island, is battling leukemia, according to MyFoxBoston.com, and his mother used social media to request birthday cards from firefighters and police officers.
The request turned into a caravan, which also included police cars from around the area.
Firefighters from other states who couldn’t make the trip, including those from Horry County, South Carolina, instead wished young Tyler a happy birthday through YouTube videos, WMBFNews.com reported.
Firefighters in Green Bay, Wisconsin also joined the celebration by sending cards, WBAY.com reported.
