WATCH: Boy With Muscular Dystrophy Flies Like Iron Man Thanks To Make-A-Wish

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



An 8-year-old boy afflicted by Duchenne muscular dystrophy got to fly like Iron Man thanks to an incredible Make-A-Wish effort.

Max Vertin traveled with his family from their home in Nebraska to Colorado, where a company gave the aspiring superhero the chance to use a wind tunnel.

Not only did Vertin take flight — Iron Man also stopped by to give “Iron Max” his own special suit.

Vertin’s two brothers are also afflicted by muscular dystrophy, and as their sister told a news crew, it was just nice to be having fun instead of visiting doctors.
