Santa Claus arrived at San Antonio's University Hospital on board a San Antonio Police Department helicopter today, explaining that this close to Christmas, the reindeer need their rest.
News Radio 1200 WOAI reports Santa then got a police escort into the hospital.
But St. Nick wasn't alone. He brought with him Superman, Aquaman, Spiderman, and a host of other superheroes, to meet with kids who will be spending the Christmas at the hospital.
He also delivered a bag of teddy bears, courtesy of University Health System blood donors.
