A True Hero: "Spiderman" rescues autistic boy

I stumbled onto this amazing story tonight and I just had to share because it made my day. It's a brief story of simple kindness, creativity, and quick thinking... living proof that there are true heroes in this world.

An 8-yr-old boy, frightened on his first day at a special needs school, climbed out onto a 3rd story ledge and refused to come back in. A fireman, overhearing his mother mention his love for comic book heroes, quickly went back to the fire station and returned wearing a Spiderman costume, which he keeps at the station for school fire drills.

"I told him Spider-Man is here to rescue you, no monsters are going to attack you and I told him to walk slowly towards me as running could be dangerous," Somchai told local television.
