Members of the Mount Pleasant Police Department SWAT team dressed up as superheroes and dramatically rappelled down the side of a hospital building in South Carolina last week! No, there wasn't a devious crime unfolding -- just officers going above and beyond to bring smiles to the faces of kids currently in the hospital.

The officers, dressed as Superman and the Flash, surprised the children by rappelling down the Medical University of South Carolina's glass atrium while greeting the children and parents along the way, providing a much-needed distraction from the every day life inside a children's hospital.

The SWAT officers were joined by Spider-Man and a pair of Transformers all staying in character throughout the day to take photos with the families, giving everyone a special and exciting day they'll remember for a very long time.
