Video: Firefighters honor boy's dying wish

The boy, who was battling Mitochondrial Disease, died at the age of four

STANTON, Mich. — A tiny white casket was set on top of a Stanton Fire Truck Monday, as the Montcalm County Fireman’s Honor Guard drove the body of 4 year-old Breylon Senn, of Howard City, through town.

Breylon died on Friday, February 15, 2013, after fighting Mitochondrial Disease since he was an infant. The disease attacks the mitochondria of the cells, killing of organs and leaving the victim very weak.

Usually, the fire truck honor is reserved for retired or current firefighters who pass away, but Lt. Brandon Stowell said that because of the circumstances, they extended the honor to Brey; it was his wish.
