Five years ago, he saved the city – and it appears, somewhere along the line, more than just that was saved.
Miles Scott, aka Batkid, made headlines in 2013 when the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted the then-5-year-old’s wish to be the Caped Crusader for a day.
As Batkid, Miles had a day of adventures in San Francisco, with thousands of residents coming together to help him live out his dream. Now, Make-A-Wish has published an update on the 10-year-old and said the 5th-grader is enjoying life as “a typical kid” with his two younger brothers.
