Cannon Falls boy tours with his heroes

Posted:

RED WING, Minn. (FOX 47)-- The Red Wing Police Department played host to a very special visitor this Monday as one ten-year-old boy got the chance to walk along with his heroes.

Cannon Falls native Gage Robinson was a victim of shaken-baby syndrome as a child, and suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result.

Despite this hardship, he dreams of becoming a police officer one day, so local law enforcement in Red Wing gave him a tour of their facilities and vehicles, along with a meet and greet with their K9 dog Maverick.

Robinson's mother said Gage's dream of becoming a police officer has been life-long one for the little boy.

"He can get very anxious because of his traumatic brain injury and this is something that helps calm him because he knows that they are there to protect you," said mother Penny Robinson.

April marks Child Abuse Prevention Month so earlier in the day, Gage tied blue ribbons on squad cars in an effort to help increase awareness.
