A Ballston Spa teen’s dream came true Tuesday, just a day ahead of his 15th birthday.

Connor Hayhurst was born with a very rare heart defect. He has to have weekly transfusions for the rest of his life.

He also had to undergo three open-heart surgeries to correct his heart defect.

Connor has been dreaming of a police ride-a-long for as long as he can remember.

Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, his wish came true Tuesday.

He went along with members of the Schenectady Police Department to State Police Aviation Headquarters in Albany.

While there, he got to check out all the planes and helicopters.

The big surprise – Connor and his family got a surprise flight back to Schenectady.
