Superheroes flexing super strength at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center


HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A big surprise for kids at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, superheroes stopped by to visit young patients facing their own medical battles.

Spiderman and Captain America came to life on this National Superhero Day. They thrilled the lives of the hospital’s own superheros, the sick children who are getting much needed medical care.

“It’s pretty exciting, I even saw my favorite one, Spiderman,” said Jason Finley, who couldn’t stop smiling. “Pretty much he was the first superhero I’d heard of and ever since I’ve liked him, until I heard about the other ones, but I still refused to like the other ones because he was my favorite.”

“A lot of the nurses said they didn’t even recognize him because for the last week he has been blah, and today he’s had a huge smile on his face,” said Jason’s mother, Tina Sanford.

High five’s for Supergirl, Superman, the Green Lantern, and the Legendary Star Lord, rocking the hallways.

“It’s awesome seeing kids just light up when they see us and think that we are actually real,” said Michael Pelletier, dressed as Legendary Star Lord. “We do our best to make them believe that we are real because hope is what is going to help them out.”
