Doctors told his mother that he would not live. He needed to be kept warm. Researchers say that he was kept warm by an oven. He was put in a shoe box. He was placed near a warm oven. He survived. Willie was always small. He grew to be four feet eleven inches tall. He weighed about ninety-five pounds. Little did he know that his small size would help him.
