AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Super heroes took over window washing duties at Akron Children's Hospital on Thursday morning.

An all-star team rappelled down the hospital's atrium windows, smiling and waving while getting the job done.

Spider-Man, Batman, Iron Man, Superman, Flash, Captain America, Hulk and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle met with kids once reaching the bottom to pose for some pictures. Hospital reps say they joined Super Girl, Robin and Bat Girl for a meet-and-greet inside, then visited patients in their rooms.

The Super Hero Visit is made possible by American National Skyline, Inc., the Cleveland-based firm that cleans the hospital windows on a regular basis.
