Make-A-Wish Grants Herkimer Boy’s Firefighter Wish
Several firefighters from Schuyler, Frankfort and Little Falls joined together to grant the wish of 4 year-old Ayden Mosher of Herkimer.
Ayden recently had a kidney transplant and his wish is to visit Disney World and visit fire stations.
On Monday, the Make-A-Wish foundation and Schuyler volunteer firefighters, along with chief John Scholl granted Ayden's wish.
Ayden's Grandfather, James 'Butch' Staffo is a retired Chief of the Little Falls Fire Department, who helped organize the firefighter welcome for young Ayden.
The Frankfort Fire Department brought their ladder truck to the Schuyler Volunteer Fire Department complete with the American Flag flying high as Ayden arrived.
Ayden then met with the firefighters and got a tour of the station before heading to Florida to visit Disney World.
In the video above you can see Ayden's arrival at the station, where he proudly returns the salutes of the firefighters.
Ayden's family says they are 'very happy and humbled to be a part of this event,' and they would like to extend their thanks to Chief Conigliaro, Asst. Chief Matt Palumbo and Firefighter John Stephens, Chief Parese, Asst. Chief Rich Ward and Firefighter Harrigan for their help and support.
