Friendly Neighbourhood Cosplayer Saves The Day!

... and restores this blogger's faith in humanity.

A fireman in Thailand dressed up as Spiderman in order to help a young autistic boy down from a window ledge. Hearing that the boy enjoyed superhero comics, Somchai Yoosabai ran all the way back to the fire station in order to retrieve the costume from his locker.

I love that the BBC article feels the need to explain that Yoosabai owns the costume because he uses it for fire safety education. You can imagine the journalist explaining it to his editor: "He wasn't, like, some pervert or anything."
