Breaking: Riddler Arrested! Batkid Miles Scott Saves San Francisco’s Gotham City in Epic Display of Crime-Fighting BraveryPosted: November 15, 2013
San Francisco has transformed into Gotham City today to help make a 5-year-old boy’s Make-A-Wish dream come true.
Miles loves superheroes, none more so than Batman. Much like Batman battles villains, Miles has been fighting his own battle with leukemia since he was just a year old. Miles is now in remission and he is getting his chance to be Batkid for a day with the help of Make-A-Wish of the Greater Bay Area, city of San Francisco and hundreds of well-wishers.
“This wish has meant closure for our family and an end to over three years of putting toxic drugs in our son’s body” Miles’ mom Natalie said.
Miles’ day will start with ABC7 News anchor Ama Daetz alerting BatKid that there’s trouble in Gotham City. Miles will spend the day battling some of Gotham’s most notorious criminals before receiving a special thank you from Mayor Ed Lee. Ama sat down with Miles Scott and his family ahead of the big day.
Make-A-Wish is inviting the public to participate in the day’s events by joining Miles to cheer him on as a flashmob warns Batkid that the Penguin has kidnapped Lou Seal and when he is presented the key to the city at City Hall.
