A six-year-old woke up Monday to find her city looking to her to help save a local hero.
A breaking newscast was broadcast in Edmonton, with Sgt. Steve Sharpe explaining that Oiler’s team captain Andrew Ference had been "kidnapped."
“If SpiderMable is out there, and you get this message, come down to the mayor’s office and be a part of that team and lead us towards safety and getting our captain back,” Sharpe pleaded.
Of course, Ference was not in danger and the newscast was staged. Ference was actually hanging out at the Edmonton Valley Zoo, waiting to be saved by his biggest fan and soon to be hero. Here's a recap of SpiderMable's incredible journey.
The whole scenario was cooked up by the Children’s Wish Foundation – with help from Edmonton Police, Mayor Don Iveson’s office and other community groups – to help Mable fulfill her dreams of helping others and fighting crime, all in a leotard.
Even Ference’s kids were in on the heroic rescue.Read More »from SpiderMable: Edmonton girl rescues "kidnapped" Oilers captain Andrew Ference
