A 6 year-old boy became an honorary Louisville firefighter Tuesday. Remember David Turner Jr.? His mother, Elizabeth Turner, wanted to make sure all of David's dreams come true, after the family discovered he had terminal brain cancer so she arranged his "best day ever." He's been traveling around with different first responder agencies, both on land and in the air, to get a taste of the excitement. Thanks to the Louisville Fire Department, he's had another "best day ever." "We actually went and picked him up, brought him here, and let him do all the things firefighters do while they're working at the station," Chief Gregory Frederick said.
