Spider-Man to the rescue

Just saw this amazing news story.

An autistic child in Thailand, frightened because it was his first day at school, crawled out of a three story window and ended up stuck out on the ledge, refusing to come back in. Teachers and authorities tried to coax the little boy to come back inside, but to no avail.

At one point the boy’s mother remarked that the little guy LOVED super-heroes. This little piece of knowledge prompted a fireman to run back to the firehouse where he kept a Spider-Man costume in his locker. (Normally used to liven up fire drills). He ran back to the scene dressed as Spider-Man!

And as the BBC reports; “The sight of Mr.Yoosabai (the fireman) dressed as Spider-Man and holding a glass of juice for him, brought a big smile to the boy's face, and he promptly threw himself into the arms of his "superhero", police said.”
LOVE this!!!
Oh, for a world filled with ordinary super-heroes!!!
Now go ahead and dust off that cape.


Here’s a link to the story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7961208.stm

What are the odds that a fireman had that costume when he needed it... :)
