When a young boy needed a hero, a Dallas cop arrived at his doorstep — in a Superman costume.
Senior Corporal Damon Cole with the Dallas PD recently came across a Facebook page about Bryce Schottel, a 7-year-old boy in Smithton, Illinois, with lymphoma.
The Facebook post asked supporters to submit photos of themselves wearing a Superman-inspired “Team Bryce” logo to help lift the young boy’s spirits during his cancer treatments.
Cole wanted to go one step further. He decided Bryce needed a visit from a superhero. So he drove the 11 hours in his Superman-wrapped 2012 Dodge Charger to Bryce’s house — paid for out of his own pocket — and surprised the boy by showing up dressed as Superman.
“I’m a part of a group called Heroes, Cops and Kids. It’s me and four other Dallas police officers,” Cole told CNN. “We dress up as superheroes and we go to schools, churches, hospitals, and just interact with the community and kids.”
His visit with Bryce was his first home visit with a sick child.Read More »from Dallas cop drives Superman-themed car to Illinois, surprises sick boy
