Patients at the CHU de Québec-Université Laval children’s hospital, Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus, got a sweet surprise on Thursday afternoon.

Quebec City police officers visited the hospital children dressed as superheroes.

In Batman and Spiderman costumes, the officers scaled down the building and windows of the patients’ rooms.

So they figured out a solution — they had the officers scale down the building.
