MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. — The New Jersey Make-A-Wish Foundation helped a 9-year-old boy’s dream come true Tuesday.
A surprise parade was thrown for Antonio, from Camden. He marched with more than 100 firefighters before he became New Jersey’s newest firefighter.
Wearing his turnout gear, he went on a ladder truck to rescue a princess from the balcony of the Make-A-Wish castle in Monroe Township.
Antonio, who has courageously battled a life-threatening medical condition, was up to the task on his first day on the job.
