MAGOFFIN COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

Kentucky Troopers paid a visit to a Facebook fan at home this week.

Dalton Dingus is 9-years-old. He's a fan of the Kentucky State Police, and follows the Post 9 Troopers' on Facebook.

He also has Cystic Fibrosis.

Dalton came home from the hospital to celebrate Christmas early this year, due to the severity of his condition.

After hearing about their young fan, Post 9 troopers came to hang out with Dalton at his home near Lexington.

Dalton told the post he'd like to make the Kentucky State Police (KSP) Facebook page because "KSP has the best Facebook friends".
