Pa. boy battling cancer becomes police officer for a day

Landon's dream come true was the 20,000th wish granted by Make-A-Wish Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
YORK COUNTY, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- A Pennsylvania boy who is fighting cancer recently got the chance to fight crime and live out his dream thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Landon Baer, 8, took his job very seriously as "Officer For the Day" with the York County, Pennsylvania Regional Police Department.

The second-grader was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney cancer last year.

His mom said Landon always wants to help other people, so he got fitted for his own police uniform and captured the criminals.
