Maxwell Hinton is a seven-year-old boy from Fresno, California. “I got cancer, Neuroblastoma, and I went through treatment and they made a wish for me,” he told Fox Toledo.
His wish? To blow something up. With heavy explosives. “I watch MythBusters and they inspired me to blow a building up,” he said. So the Make-a-Wish Foundation made it happen for him.
