Being at a hospital is no fun for anyone, and it can be especially trying for kids.
But on Tuesday at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, sick children stuck in their hospital beds got the unexpected treat outside their windows thanks to a group of window washers who dressed up like super heroes.
A heroic trio of Spiderman, Batman and Superman joined forces to scale down walls, scrub down windows and bring a lot of smiles along the way.
“This time, the enemy is grime, not crime,” said Patrick Connor, administrative director of support services, “and we know these legends will brighten everyone’s day.”
Lucile Packard said the workers brightened both "the day and the windows."
The window washers work for Delta Window Cleaning in Santa Clara. They have dressed up in the past, but on Tuesday they expanded their grime fighting unit to include a bigger variety of characters.
“It was a big hit with the kids and staff,” said Efrain Guerra, director of the hospital’s housekeeping services. “So, this time, we talked to Delta about letting some other superheroes get in on the action.”
