Boy Gets to be Detroit Firefighter for a Day

A three-year-old Detroit boy who had a heart transplant is having his wish granted. Tyren Johnson says he loves fire trucks and wants to be a firefighter when he grows up, reports My Fox Detroit.

Thanks to Make-A-Wish Michigan and the Detroit fire department, he gets to become one before he grows up.

Tyren’s day started Tuesday morning with a fire truck ride and a hero’s welcome at Engine 54. Make-A-Wish Michigan grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, and being a firefighter for a day is Tyren’s wish.
