We've seen stories before where the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted a kid's wish to be BATMAN for a day. But they SERIOUSLY went all-out on Friday in San Francisco, so this one's getting a LOT more attention.
Miles Scott is a five-year-old from Northern California who's been battling leukemia since he was 18 months old. Right now he's in remission, and wanted to be "Batkid" for a day. And Make-A-Wish made it happen.
Miles dressed up as a mini Batman, got to ride in a black Lamborghini that served as a makeshift Batmobile, stopped The Riddler from robbing a bank, and saved a damsel in distress on a cable car.
Then he rescued the San Francisco Giants' mascot from The Penguin, and the mayor presented him with a key to "Gotham City" on the steps of City Hall.
And every step of the way, there were people holding signs, wearing Batkid t-shirts, and cheering him on. About 7,000 people coordinated to help make it happen.
The "San Francisco Chronicle" even printed a special edition titled the "Gotham City Chronicle" with the headline, "Batkid Saves City," and handed out 1,000 copies.
Miles also got props from basically every ACTOR who's played Batman. Christian Bale called it "fantastic." Michael Keatoncalled it the "cutest thing in the world." And Adam West said the people of San Francisco did a "wonderful thing."
Even President Obama got in on it, and posted a video congratulating him, saying, quote, "Way to go Miles. Way to save Gotham."
(You can see how a bunch of other random politicians and celebrities reacted here. Everyone from BRITNEY SPEARS, KHLOE KARDASHIAN, and the New Orleans Saints . . . to "Batman" composer Hans Zimmer?)
If your dog saved your life, you'd probably reward it with extra TLC, treats, anything. But this week, a guy in Iowa did WAY more than that.
Around 1:30 in the morning on Tuesday, Paul Kemp of Des Moines, Iowa woke up to his dog Sheba barking like crazy and jumping on his chest. Then he realized why . . . when he saw FLAMES spreading across the room, about 10 feet from him.
The first thing he did was try to put the fire out with water. But it was already too late, so he ran out of the house, went to his neighbor's, and called 911.
But then he noticed Sheba wasn't with him, and realized she must still be INSIDE. So he ran BACK into the burning house, found Sheba, and saved HER life.
So far, police aren't sure what caused the fire, but the house was a total loss. Luckily, Paul had homeowner's insurance. He and Sheba are currently in a hotel.
A 27-year-old woman named Claire Pepper was riding her bike through London on Monday, when she got hit by a car and PINNED underneath it.
Luckily she was wearing a helmet, which she'd bought just two days earlier. But she was stuck because the helmet apparently got lodged between the car and the road.
And as soon as THAT became clear, ten people rushed in and managed to LIFT the car onto its SIDE, so paramedics could get to her. Thankfully, the car was a Volkswagen Golf, not something bigger.
In the end, Claire was treated for a serious concussion, a broken collarbone, and other injuries. And one of the paramedics said the group of people may have saved her life by allowing her to be treated immediately.
Claire is now recovering in the hospital, and says once she recovers, she's going to track down all ten of the Good Samaritans and say thank you. And she also hopes the story will remind other cyclists to ALWAYS wear a helmet.
