Spider-Man and Mr Somchai

Published on March 25th, 2009

Spider-Man is real and here is why!! Teachers at a special needs school in  Bangkok  alerted the authorities when an autistic student, who was terrified of attending his first day at school, climbed out onto the third-floor ledge and refused to come inside. The mother mentioned her son’s love of superheroes inspiring fireman Sonchai Yoosabai to run back to the fire station.

“I told him Spider-Man is here to rescue you, no monsters are going to attack you and I told him to walk slowly towards me as running could be dangerous,
” Mr Somchai told the press

Somchai said he keeps the Spider-Man costume and an outfit of Japanese television character Ultraman at the station in order to liven up school fire drills.. Mr Somchai is a real life hero in my book.
