Perhaps, Watchmen inspired this real hero, who happens to also be a Thai fireman! Lucky for the young autistic boy that was sitting on the 3rd floor ledge, this classy Spiderman came to his rescue. Several others attempted to save him but he was only responsive to the masked man! Firemen are actual heroes, several pass away day after day fulfilling their jobs. This one was bright enough to think outside the box to save a little boy’s life! Highly commendable! Proves comics and video games often do a lot of good!
Teachers at a special needs school in Bangkok alerted authorities on Monday when an autistic pupil, scared of attending his first day at school, 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.
The rescuer dashed back to his fire station and made a quick change into a Spider-Man costume before returning to the boy, he said.”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.
