When asked for a list of her last wishes, Alyssa Elkins, a 16-year-old girl with leukemia, said she wanted to "taze someone". She was granted that wish on Sunday, when she unleashed a stun gun on an Ohio police sergeant.
Police in central Ohio Newark helped fulfill one of Elkins's last wishes, and Sergeant Doug Bline volunteered for this treacherous task.
Elkins made the unusual request after remembering a video which made her laugh, one of her uncle, Josh Barry, a Columbus Metro Post State Highway Patrol trooper, being shot with a taser during his training.
She gripped the weapon and closed her eyes and discharged the prongs 5 feet away from Bline who was being propped up by two fellow officers.
"It is unpleasant, to say the least, but if for five seconds it makes somebody's kind of dream come true, especially in her situation, I think it was well worth it," Bline said.
Elkins has decided not to go through with a second round of treatment for her disease after she went through four months of treatment earlier at the Nationwide Children's Hospital during her first battle with leukemia in 2015.
