(ABC 6 News) -- Pediatric patients at Mayo Clinic's Children's Center took a break from their daily check-ups to watch some of their favorite superheroes in action.

Spiderman, Superman, Batman, and a couple other big names came repelling from the windows of Saint Marys Hospital. Not only did the patients get to watch them in action, but they were also able to mingle and get pictures with their favorite superheroes.

This was a very special moment for one little boy we chatted with, who is one of Batman's biggest fans.

"I never knew they had superheroes that come to a hospital but it was pretty special for them to come here today for me," said patient Carter Simonson.

This isn't the first time these superheroes have come to visit. Mayo Clinic has had them and other guests come by, in hopes to make the kids’ hospital experience more enjoyable.
