Hey, Look Outside...It's a Superhero!


Patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado watched in awe as the Aurora SWAT team, dressed as superheroes, rappelled down the side of the our hospital. The gang, which included Batman, Robin, Captain America and Spider-Woman, took turns scaling down the building, some even hanging upside down and waving to the patients inside.

The event was suggested by Hallie Wastell, a mother and cancer survivor who wanted to bring joy to kids in the hospital. Wastell posted the idea on the Facebook page for The Bucket List Life, a website dedicated to helping others tick off life experiences.
