A seven-year-old boy with cancer had his dream come true when a charity organised for him to demolish a building.

Maxwell Hinton was desperate to explode a building after watching the TV show, MythBusters.

His dream came true when the Make-A-Wish Foundation charity organised for him to push the button to demolish an old grain mill.

"I watch MythBusters and they inspired me to blow a building up," said Maxwell, from California. "I got cancer, Neuroblastoma, and I went through treatment and they made a wish for me."

Maxwell's handiwork is the final phase of a four year project across the pond, and between 30,000 and 40,000 people watched the building come crashing down.

"It's been a great experience for him but it's a great experience for this whole area," said organiser, Doug Studer.

What a fabulous experience for Maxwell!
