Superheroes surprise kids at Goryeb Children's Hospital

Pediatric patients at Goryeb Children's Hospital in Morristown received the surprise of their lives Tuesday when superheroes came to visit.



Superman, Captain American, Spider-man and other caped crusaders visited the kids and hosted a party with them as part of National Superhero Day.



Hospital employees say it's a great opportunity to lift the spirits of the young patients.



"It's just something fun to look forward to for the day, showing them what they're going through will end soon," says Jen Coviello, a child life specialist at the hospital. "[The heroes] really want to inspire and empower [the kids] for the day."



National Superhero Day was created to honor real life heroes that "give it their all."
