Real Life Thai Spiderman Saves Some Kid!
The Spiderman is real, and he's Thai. (is that too vague a watchmen reference?) Anyhow, apparently some brave Thai fireman dressed up as spiderman to rescue an autistic 8 year old who had crawled out onto a ledge. The boy's mother had tipped off the fireman that the kid was really into comic books and superheroes, and that prompted Somchai Yoosabai to rush back to the station and get his spiderman costume; which he apparently reserves for the most awesome fire drills. Short story shorter, the kid practically leapt into Spiderman's arms. Who could blame him, I'd die of joy if Spiderman came crawling up my building bringing me a juice box! Also, I'm just happy there are still kids under the age of 24 who are into comics. Only in Thailand.
