Terminally ill boy dies in Santa's arms.
A US man who dresses up as Santa Claus fulfilled a dying boy's Christmas wish by visiting him at his bedside, before the youngster passed away in his arms. Eric Schmitt-Matzen rushed to a local in Tennessee hospital after receiving a call about a terminally ill five-year-old boy who wanted to see Santa Claus. The 60-year-old impersonator said he gave the child a present and a big hug before holding him as he died.The boy's family watched on from the hallway as they cried, he told the BBC."When I felt the life go from him, I looked up, tears running down my face, and looked over at the window and that's when mom started screaming," he said.continue
