Superhero window washers wow sick kids

It's a bird- it's a plane- it's.... well... it's a window washer dressed as superman. A pair of window washers in Sao Paulo Brazil donned Superman and Captain America outfits as they worked on the windows of a children's hospital- much to the delight of the patients inside. Five year old Luiz Ricardo couldn't believe his eyes. So cool, cool, cool, he said. The special guests were brought in to help celebrate Brazil's National Children's Day. The director of the hospital said it's important to help children forget their troubles, if only for a little while. (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) DIRECTOR OF SABARA CHILDRENS' HOSPITAL, JOSE LUIZ SETUBAL, SAYING: "These moments that refer to the humanization of hospitalization makes things much easier for the children. They momentarily forget their pains and injections. It's so important for us." And for the superheroes- well, it's all in a day's work. Seeing the children smile really makes your day
