Dressing up like superheroes can lead to real life heroism. John Buckland and Troy Marcum were having an “ordinary” day. They were dressed like Batman and Captain America, and they were participating in a children’s event at an American Legion Post and representing Heroes 4 Higher. Buckland owns the organization and uses it to teach positive lessons to children through being heroes.
On their way home from the event, Batman and Captain America spotted smoke coming from a residence and jumped into action to see if anyone was trapped inside. It’s important to note that Buckland – Batman – is a former firefighter so that he is at least trained in responding to these situations. They didn’t find any humans, but they were able to rescue a cat that had passed out. Batman resuscitated the feline, and everyone lived to tell the tale.
I can’t imagine what it would have been like to witness the rescue, and goodness only knows what was going through the cat’s head.
Check out a video about the rescue with a few words from Batman after the break.
