Superheroes rappel at Children's Hospital, visit kids

AURORA, Colo. - Several superheroes took some time off from battling crime Thursday to make a surprise appearance at Children's Hospital in Aurora.

Batman, Robin, Spiderwoman and Captain America were spotted rappeling off the roof of Children's Hospital before visiting the patients.

We're told the people behind the masks are real-life heroes -- members of the Aurora Police Department's SWAT team.

The visit was inspired by Hallie Wastell, a cancer survivor and mom.

Children's Hospital said Wastrell wanted to "pay it forward" and have superheroes scale or rappel down Children’s Hospital Colorado to surprise the kids.

She posted the idea on The Bucket List Life’s Facebook page and Kenyon Salo, founder and checklist destroyer of The Bucket List Life, contacted Children’s Hospital Colorado, who then worked with the City of Aurora Police SWAT team to help make this happen.
