DICKSON, Oklahoma -- The Make-A-Wish Foundation is giving a little boy in Dickson, Oklahoma, the trip of a lifetime.

Conner McDougall survived a car crash that killed his father and brother. He's spent two years in a wheelchair.  But he's making remarkable progress.

Friends at the local fire station call him "Little Superman."   Conner left Tuesday on a Make-A-Wish adventure.

"We went through a lot of looking and searching of what would be the best thing for Connor and we chose Disney World. They actually have several rides that he can ride in his wheelchair which is pretty awesome," Sonya McDougall-Hunter, Conner's mom. 

Doctors first said Conner would never move his arms or legs or show any emotion. A speech therapist is teaching him to speak again and soon Connor will be off the ventilator that helps him breathe.
