DILWORTH, Minn. (AP) – A 5-year-old northwestern Minnesota boy, born with numerous congenital birth defects, has died on a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World in Florida.

Daytyn Hart enjoyed four days at Disney World, swimming and visiting the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Cocoa Beach. He died Friday at a hospital in Orlando, Fla. His father, Desi Hart, says he and his wife, Angie, discussed the trip with Daytyn’s doctors and everyone agreed he was healthy and able to make the trip.

The boy had more than 55 surgeries and procedures in his short lifetime. He spent the first seven months in the hospital after he was born with a long list of birth defects.

Angie Hart tells The Forum that even with all the medical problems, her son never complained about anything.
