(AP) — A 7-year-old New York boy is back selling lemonade and raising money for a friend in need after a state health inspector put the squeeze on him last month.

Brendan Mulvaney raised more than $900 on Saturday for the family of a 12-year-old girl who’s facing surgery this week to fix a bowleg deformity from a rare bone disease.

An inspector shuttered Brendan’s stand in Ballston Spa on July 27 because he didn’t have a permit to sell 75-cent lemonade. State officials say vendors from a nearby county fair had complained.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH’-moh) quickly intervened. The Democrat directed health officials to work with Brendan’s family to ensure he could reopen.

The health department apologized. It said permits are required but children usually get a pass.
