A heartfelt condolence! Avengers super fan, Emilio Pachon, 11, has died on Wednesday, March 28, Fox News journalist Shannon Bream has confirmed.
In his last days, Shannon tweeted that the young boy dying wish was to hear from one of the Avengers before he died. This resulted in a deep love and support from the hit series' superheroes the child admired.
The 47-year-old news reporter said that the well-wishes the boy received from the superheroes "lit up his hospital room and blessed his family."
Since his passing, Zachary and CNN host Jake Tapper expressed their condolences to the family via social media.

What a special little boy and a special family. Thanks to @ShannonBream for bringing attention to them and to all the Avengers — Paul Rudd, @ChrisEvans and more — who helped make his last moments happy ones.

Shannon told her followers,
Though Emilio has passed, any Avengers/Heroes who wanted to send messages can now direct them to his twin little brothers who are big fans of yours too.
