Best Make-a-Wish Ever? A Sick Seven-Year-Old Boy Wanted to Blow Up a Building

Bou Gets Wish

Boy Gets Wish

Maxwell Hinton is a seven-year-old boy from Fresno, California who came up with possibly the BEST Make-a-Wish ever.

Maxwell had neuroblastoma, which is a malignant cancer that’s most commonly found in children.  He’s undergone treatment and is recovering.

Maxwell must have used some of his recovery time to think about his wish, because when the Make-a-Wish people showed up, he was ready with a great one.

Instead of meeting a famous person or going to an amusement park, Maxwell wanted . . . to blow up a building.

Maxwell said he watched a lot of “MythBusters” and they inspired his passion for blowing things up.

We don’t know how long it took the Make-a-Wish people to find it, but they finally located a building that needed to be demolished.

The ConAgra grain mill in Huron, Ohio needed to come down to make room for a riverfront development project.  (–Huron is about 55 miles west of Cleveland.)

Maxwell got flown to Ohio, and on Sunday, he got to press the button that set off the explosions.
