San Francisco to call on 'Batkid' to fight crime
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco is set to turn into Gotham City, as city officials help fulfill a 5-year-old leukemia patient's wish to be "Batkid."
The Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation says the boy, Miles Scott, of Tulelake, Calif., will be called into service on Friday morning by San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr.
Miles will rescue a woman from cable car tracks in Nob Hill and capture the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown bank. A flash mob will then summon him for another caper: a kidnapping involving the Penguin. He will receive the key to the city from the mayor around 2 p.m.
KGO-TV reports that Miles is now in remission.
His father, Nick Scott, tells the station he is thankful to Make-A-Wish and everyone else who made his son's wish possible.
