The Adventures of "Batkid": 5-Year-Old Cancer Patient's Dream Comes True
Through the efforts of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco, "Batkid" became a superhero reality on Friday for a five-year-old suffering from leukemia.
Little Miles Scott donned his "bat" apparel before braving a shut-down city to rescue a woman from cable-car tracks, help capture The Riddler, and foil a kidnapping by The Penguin. It was all part of massive efforts orchestrated by the city to turn the city on the bay into Gotham City for one day only.
Residents lined the streets holding posters with words of encouragement for "Batkid" as he was escorted from location to location in - you guessed it - the Batmobile.
Miles's dad says he's grateful for everyone's help in making his son's dream come true. And even more good news? We're told that the five-year-old's leukemia is in remission!
