Flight to the North Pole brings sick kids from NJ to see Santa

12/11/2015

United Airlines offered the trip of a lifetime on Wednesday for about 40 children and their families. This special "fantasy" flight from Newark International Airport was that much sweeter because those 40 children have been patients of two area hospitals, University Hospital and Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. Mosai McDonald, an 8-year-old from East Orange who has sickle cell anemia, said he thought the trip was "amazing." "I'm going to tell people about Santa and everything," he said before boarding.
