The Story of David "Bubble Boy" Vetter, The US Boy Who Lived in a Bubble

David Vetter is just like any other kid if he doesn't live in a bubble.


Yes, bubbles. Really bubbles. Cover it. Cover it.

This Texas boy was then nicknamed “Bubble Boy”.

Quoted from the New York Times, this child was born on September 21, 1971 at Texas Children's Hospital, Houston.

But just 20 seconds after his birth, David was immediately put in a plastic bubble-shaped insulator.

David Vetter is the third child of the couple Carol Ann and David J Vetter. He was born with Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), which is a disorder of the immune system due to genetic disorders.

This is what makes him have to stay in a bubble.

While David was still in the womb, the doctor had told Carol that the child she was carrying might have SCID.

However, Carol is adamant about the pregnancy and refuses an abortion offer. In fact, David's older brother died with the same disease.

This is what makes 20 seconds after his birth, David was immediately put in a sterile insulating room in the form of a bubble.

Inside the bubbles are prepared various kinds of necessities, such as diapers, food, water, and clothes.

Amazingly, despite living in a cramped and isolated room, David grew up like a normal kid.

His parents gave academic lessons. David could also watch television inside the bubble.

David also visits his house a few times a week, with the doctor's permission, of course and still in a bubble.
