Miles Scott melted the hearts of people around the world today!
Thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation and hundreds of volunteers, the 5-year-old’s dream of being his favorite superhero come true. The young leukemia patient morphed into Batkid for the day and turned San Francisco into a make-believe Gotham City.
“Batkid was called into service by Police Chief Greg Suhr and spent the day zooming from one ‘crime scene’ to the next. Accompanied by an adult Batman impersonator, Batkid rescued a damsel in distress from cable car tracks, captured the Riddler as he robbed a bank, and saved the San Francisco Giants mascot — Lou Seal — from the Penguin’s clutches,” the Associated Press reported. “Batkid had a police escort worthy of a dignitary as he sped around the city in a black Lamborghini with a Batman decal, with officers blocking traffic and riding alongside him on motorcycles.”
The memorable day even caught the attention of the President, who gave Batkid a personal shout out. “Way to go, Miles! Way to save Gotham,” Obama said in a Vine video tweeted by the White House.
Miles, who was diagnosed at 18 months old, ended his chemotherapy treatments in June. According to reports, he is now in remission.
