LOS ANGELES – A 6-year-old boy in Los Angeles battling a rare genetic disease fulfilled his dream of becoming a SWAT officer thanks to his local law enforcement officers.
Steven Pulido, 6, was diagnosed with Adrenoleukodystrophy, which breaks down parts of the brain. He’s been undergoing treatments for the disease, but his condition has continued to worsen over time, despite two bone marrow transplants.
Steven, who live in Los Angeles, loves his local law enforcement officers.
“We see the firemen going by, he’s waving. He sees cops on the motorcycle on the highway and he’s waving ‘Hi,’ and they can’t even see him,” his mom Christel Pulido said, according to KNBC.
Steven has dressed up as a SWAT officer for the past few Halloweens, and on Friday he finally became a real SWAT officer thanks to his local law enforcement officers.
He spent the day training with the Sheriff’s Air Rescue helicopter and the weapons team.
“He just loves law enforcement,” said Pulido.
