I want to be on top of the world - National News , Burj Khalifa
A seven-year-old boy who is dying from a brain tumour is set to fulfil his last wish by travelling from America to Dubai to visit the Burj Khalifa.
Noah Larkin has been infatuated with the world’s tallest building since he can remember and is determined to go up the 828m structure so he can feel “on top of the world”. His mother Amber said: “When he was four he wanted to research the tallest building in the world and his love for Dubai was born. We watched the construction of the Burj Khalifa tower on the internet. Every week we would look for new YouTube postings,” she said.
“We watched every ‘How it’s Made’ show we could. He saw the host of one going to the top, and said, ‘That’s where I need to be - the top of the world!’”
Amber added: “As we watched and researched, he not only wanted to know about the building but all of Dubai as well. ‘Mum, do you know that they have amazing architecture!’
