Brazil: 5 years old boy dressed as Spiderman saves baby

Rachel Glickhouse, from Adventures of a Gringa in Rio, brings a piece of news that happened in Santa Catarina, state in the south of Brazil: “5-year old boy named Riquelme (named after an Argentine soccer player), rescued a one-year old girl from a terrible fire in a neighboring home, while clothed in a Spiderman outfit. When he saw the fire growing, he yelled, “I'M SPIDERMAN!” and ran into the house and saved the girl”. See some more news on Brazil through the views of a young American student here.
