A terrified 11-year-old climbed out on a ledge on his first day at a special new school. The young man, who lives in Thailand, is autistic. After climbing onto the ledge, neither his mother nor teacher could coax him back inside.
The fire department was called, and firefighter Somchai Yoosabai was one who responded. After overhearing a conversation about how much the boy liked comics, he returned to the Bangkok fire station and put on a Spider-Man costume. When the crying boy saw Yoosabai in his costume, he smiled and walked into the costumed firefighter’s arms.
