The Arlington (TX) Police and Fire Departments and the Texas-based nonprofit a Wish with Wings joined forces to realize the dream of a young cancer patient who wanted nothing more than to become Batman for a day.
Officers and firefighters, assisted by the Mayor’s Office, organized various comic-inspired crimes around the city requiring the ass-kicking skills of a caped crusader.
Accompanied by police and Big Batman, 7-year-old Kye, who suffers from leukemia, roamed the streets of Arlington as Little Batman, mopping up an attempted bank robbery by the Joker, and putting the kibosh on a city hall bomb planted by the Riddler.
At the end of a long day of crime fighting, Kye was awarded the Key to the City by Assistant Police Chief James Hawthorne.
