Texas officer dressed as Iron Man flies to meet dying 7-year-old in Orlando

- With less than 24 hours notice, Texas Police Officer Damon Cole booked a flight to visit Cole St. Clair, 7, in Orlando.

The young boy has a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor at the base of his brain.

He was diagnosed back in August 2015 and has already lost his ability to walk.

His Make-a-Wish Disney Cruise scheduled for Feb. 28 was canceled because he's too sick to travel.

Sadly, doctors say he only has a few weeks to live.

Texas Police Officer Damon Cole is the man behind Heroes and Cops Against Childhood Cancer.

He transforms into superheroes and visits children across the country.

On Saturday, he made a special visit, dressed up as Iron Man, to meet the 7-year-old.

Damon Cole hopes, Robert Downey, Jr., himself, will send a message to Cole.
