'Star Wars' wheelchair helps 12-year-old boy from Stockton get around

A 12-year-old boy from Stockton is getting around on his wheelchair with help from his favorite villain, Darth Vader.

Xavier Valero was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at 5 years old.

His mom applied for a specially-designed wheelchair through the Magic Wheelchair Foundation.

The result?

A Darth Vader tie-fighter.

The costume fits over his electric chair.

Xavier calls it amazing.
