It's a very special day for senior Austin Otey.
He was named homecoming king at Normal Community High School, despite not being at school this year. Friday, Austin flew in from a Memphis hospital, where he's being treated for brain cancer. Finding a flight wasn't easy, but he got some much needed help.
Lifeline Pilots, a group of volunteer pilots that help people with life threatening conditions, flew Austin and his mom for free. With their help, Austin made it to his special day and was crowned king in front of everyone who supported him.
"It's more for me to just let loose and get everything out of my system. So I can focus on getting better," said Otey.
Austin will return to Memphis on Sunday. He has at least five more weeks of treatment at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
