FRANKLIN GROVE, Ill. (WIFR) -- Almost everyone remembers their favorite Halloween costume. One little boy may have received his most memorable one yet.

Dalton is 11-years-old and he's autistic. He also has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a genetic disorder where patients muscles break down causing them to feel weak. He's also the recipient of a new custom costume thanks to the Magic Wheelchair. The Magic Wheelchair creates costumes for kids with disabilities at no costs to their families.

Dalton loves firefighters and fire trucks so the folks at the Magic Wheelchair transformed his chair into his very own fire truck. He even got to meet firefighters and spray the hose.

ScaryHouse in Rockford helped The Magic Wheelchair bring the costume to life.
