'Spider-Man' rescues autistic Thai boy
Tue Mar 24, 4:40 AM


BANGKOK (AFP) - A Thai fireman turned superhero when he dressed up as comic-book character Spider-Man to coax a frightened eight-year-old from a balcony, police said Tuesday.

Teachers at a special needs school in Bangkok alerted authorities on Monday when an autistic pupil, scared of going to lessons, sat out on the third-floor ledge and refused to come inside, a police sergeant told AFP.

Despite teachers' efforts to beckon the boy inside, he refused to budge until his mother mentioned her son's love of superheroes, prompting fireman Sonchai Yoosabai to take a novel approach to the problem.

"My fireman rushed back to the fire station and took out his Spider-Man costume... The boy immediately ran into his arms with a smile," sergeant Virat Boonsadao said.

He said the fireman keeps the costume at work to liven up school fire drills.

Glad to see the last line of that. I was wondering why a fireman would have a Spiderman costume. :-b

And let's hope that kid doesn't think Spiderman will come anytime he goes out on that ledge.

That's a good point Mad, hopefully his ability to get to that ledge doesn't exist anymore either.

I was wondering that too.. "to liven up school fire drills." I guess he got the kid down safe, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. ;-)

Me too.

Great thinking, but like Met said, I hope they have taken the necessary precautions so this doesn't happen again
