Spider- Men wash windows and put smiles of the face of children.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Window washers dressed as Spider-Man are delighting young patients at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

Despite temperatures in the upper 80s earlier this week, Matt McGehee and Andy Weeks couldn’t bring themselves to pull off their hoods and full-body superhero suits.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that for the past year and a half, they and the crew from ALLGLASS Window Cleaning have been doing their work at the hospital dressed as superheroes. McGehee says they do it for the kids. Other hospitals around the country also use costumed window washers.

Beth Damsgaard-Rodriguez says it’s the first time she’d seen son 10-year-old son Jacob smile in a couple of days. He had an appendectomy after a painful burst appendix.
