"I just want to say, That was fun."
So said a young man named Kye, 7, whose wish as he battles leukemia was to star in a Batman movie. Instead, he spent Saturday fighting villains on a Batman adventure courtesy of Arlington police and firefighters and A Wish With Wings.
Kye's surprise adventure included apprehending The Joker during an attempted bank robbery.
He also stopped a purse-snatcher outside the Arlington police station and foiled a "car bomb" set by the Riddler near City Hall, according to a news release from the Arlington Police Department.
At the end of the day, Arlington Assistant Chief James Hawthorne presented Kye with a key to the city and other gifts.
As Kye explains during the presentation, he is experienced in the martial arts, making him uniquely qualified to fight crime.
Listen as he tells the audience at City Hall that he has cancer but is "doing good."
