A day at the police station turned into an epic zombie hunt for a terminally ill boy.
As 7-year-old Spencer Holt was getting a gift from Pasco County (FL) Sheriff Chris Nocco, a deputy in full SWAT attire stormed into the room.
“Zombies overran the jail. They overran the jail! We can’t hold them back! We need help, we can’t hold them back!”
“How many are there?,” asks Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco.
“Alright, let’s draw up a plan,” Nocco said.
After getting to the whiteboard, Sheriff Nocco told Spencer,”We’re getting overrun, buddy. We need your help. We need a team leader out there. It may get dangerous, okay? We’ve never fought zombies before!”
The 7-year-old was then given his very own “zombie gun” and taken through to clear out the undead – with the help of several deputies, including one using a shield.
“It’s nice because he spends a lot of his time in the hospital, so him to be able to something different and special and have fun, it’s nice,” Spencer’s mom Cher Holt said.
“I think for Spencer, you know, he’s going to remember this day. As much as it meant to him, it probably meant a lot more to a lot of us, too,” Sheriff Nocco told reporters.
