Make-a-Wish Fulfills Child's Dream

Maxwell Hinton is in the middle of a fight for his life. The 7-year-old learned in April 2010 he had stage four neuroblastoma. Doctors say he has less than a 20% chance of survival.

So the Make-a-Wish foundation decided to make Max's biggest dream come true. On Sunday, they flew the Clovis boy out to Huron, Ohio, so he could blow up his very own building.

The ConAgra building was set for demolition and Make-a-Wish worked things out so Max could push the button.

"I watch Mythbusters and they inspired me to want to blow up a building," Max told WKYC before the implosion.

Max is being treated at UC San Francisco Medical Center.
