“Superhero” boys live to tell the tale—just

One UK hospital reported that five boys sustained serious injury while dressed as Spiderman or Superman. At least three of them had tried to fly without a planned landing strategy. Four of the boys sustained fractures and one a minor head injury. Guidance for parents of putative superheroes is available from the American National Association for the Education of Young Children at www.naeyc.org/ece/1997/16.asp.www.naeyc.org/ece/1997/16.asp.
