Rolemodel of the Week: Part X

Spider man saves boy from window ledge

No, that is not a typo, an eight year old boy was on a window ledge, at school.
A Bangkok fireman rescued the autistic boy by dressing up as spiderman and coaxing him off of the ledge with juice.

Read the article, it is here. It is short and to the point.

On it's face this is a fun story about a man saving a boy. Who knows why the childs teachers did nothing, or were distracetd. It is a shameful act that I am sure they regret. But a boy was saved that day, not by Spiderman, but by a quick thinking firefighter who realized that the situation called for a delicate touch, a touch as delicate as a spiders web.
