Video: Batkid’s special day in San Francisco is made into superb mini-documentary

We're not crying, honestly...

We’re not crying, honestly…

Back in November we brought you the story of Miles Scott, a five-year-old who beat leukemia and who wanted to be Batman for the day. The Make-A-Wish Foundation made it happen in the most spectacular way possible, as did the people of San Francisco, who turned out in their thousands to cheer Miles on. From the police to the news channels to baseball team the San Francisco Giants, they really turned the city by the bay into Gotham City for the day.

The story went global and was probably the most heart-warming tale of the year just gone. Now the good folks at Make-A-Wish have released a video chronicling Miles’ day and it is simply fantastic.
