Neighbourhood Spiderman makes Houston kids smile

This is lovely.

Jade Hayden


Last week, Storm Harvey landed in Houston, Texas, leaving 38 people dead, countless buildings destroyed, and a lot of families without shelter.

Many have been sleeping in Hurricane shelters like this one in theĀ George R. Brown Convention Center.

Among them are young children, just waiting to hear if they’ll have a home to go back to.

But this week, your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman came to bring a smile to these displaced kid’s faces.

And the footage is just lovely.

According to People, nobody actually knows who was behind the Spiderman mask.

But, as it turns out, it didn’t matter, because children were only delighted to see their favourite Marvel character doing the rounds at the shelter.

The unidentified man can be seen handing out pictures and stickers and playing with various kids around the centre.

Over 10,000 people are currently living in the centre since the storm hit Houston last week.
