3-year-old boy deputized in Indiana

Updated: Saturday, July 12, 2014

HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There's a new sheriff's deputy in Huntington County, Indiana.

3-year-old Wyatt Schmaltz, who has stage four neuroblastoma, was sworn in this week as the youngest deputy on the force.

Sheriff Terry Stoffel presented Wyatt with an official uniform, badge, and special powers.

"This boy is symbolic of what Camp Hero stands for. Courage, honor, integrity, laughing, living life to its fullest even though the chips are down," Sheriff Stoffel said.

"It is just like a breath of fresh air to get him to do something that isn't hospital related," said Wyatt's mother April Schmaltz.

Wyatt was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.

He needs surgery to remove a tumor in his abdomen and a fifth round of chemotherapy.

Right now, Wyatt's only official orders are to get better.

His parents say he's already exercised his badge, putting a nurse who took his blood under arrest.
