9-year-old boy gets out of this world birthday surprise

Lucas, who loves all things space, got a long-distance call on his birthday. It was from the International Space Station!


Lucas St. Onge celebrated his 9th birthday on Thursday, but he's celebrating an even bigger feat: four years since surviving a multiple organ transplant.

"I feel amazing and awesome," St. Onge said.

The 9-year-old has always dreamed of meeting an astronaut, and on his birthday, received a phone call from the International Space Station hundreds of miles away in space.

St. Onge has aspirations of becoming an astronaut one day and even has his own space suit.

"It's an incredible feeling to know that he's still here, knowing all the ups and downs this child has been through in life," his mother, Heather, said.
