Special Homecoming for Wichita Falls Boy Born With Heart Defect
A Wichita Falls boy receives a very special and heartfelt homecoming with the help of local first responders after spending months in the hospital.
On Tuesday afternoon, Wichita County Sheriff's Office patrol units and Wichita Falls Fire Department fire engines paraded in front of the home of Corbin Cohn, a 3- year- old boy born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome is a complex and rare heart defect where the left side of the heart is critically underdeveloped causing the right side of the heart to do all the work.
Corbin's family says he loves emergency vehicles, the sirens and flashing lights.
It's a beautiful gesture Corbin's parents are forever grateful for.
Amberley Cohn, Corbin's mother, says, "We're glad he's home and we're glad that the community supports us so much and everything that they've done for us and this is just another way that they've supported Corbin."
In addition, his father, Joshua Corbin says, "I just want to say thanks to all the people of Wichita Falls and the surrounding area for praying for my son Corbin. It means so much to me."
Corbin has had three open heart surgeries along with other procedures but went into heart failure in March and has been receiving treatment at Cook Children's Hospital since March.
His parents are glad he got to meet some local heroes and take pictures with them as well.
He also got toys to play with.
