Bruce Berrios was patiently waiting to receive the news on whether or not he'd be approved to leave Cohen Children's Medical Center on Wednesday, which just so happens to be his ninth birthday.
Expecting to see a doctor or a nurse, Berrios, who was admitted on Sunday after an accident and sustained a few injuries including a broken arm, was bewildered when New York Islanders mascot Sparky the Dragon entered his room instead.
"Best day ever!" Berrios exclaimed. "I was never expecting a blue and orange sparky dragon to walk in here."
