Spider-Man Spotted Helping Out With Hurricane Irma Cleanup
Considering the chances of her seeing an actual superhero doing his part to make things better after a great calamity, Hanbury immediately posted photos of “Spider-Man” and shared it with her friends via Facebook.
“Omg! Just walked out the front door and found Spider-Man helping chainsaw down the huge tree covering our road! *Just snapped with iPhone, totally original, no photo shopping & no it’s not my husband lol. Just a cool thing that happened in front of my house of Riverview Blvd in Bradenton, Florida after Irma,” wrote Hanbury on her wall.
Hanbury’s husband, Alan, also caught a glimpse of the man in a costume who was truly carrying out a superhero-work.
“Spider-Man worked the tree, then swung off and jumped in his little black pickup with a friend and flew off!” said Hanbury. “I do not know why he was dressed as Spider-Man, nor do I know the name or identity of the masked man.”
Wearing a costume was indeed uncanny after a terrifying storm but Hanbury admitted that seeing Spiderman helping out was a breath of fresh air after all that the community had been through.
“It was a silver lining after waiting a long week for the hurricane to arrive. People were terrified and exhausted,” she said.
Hanbury is grateful that the hurricane was a little less terrifying than earlier predicted and that they are all safe.
The photos of Spiderman at work have gone viral and Hanbury had this to say: “To Spider-Man, I would like to say, ‘Thank you!’. I’m glad we have real-life heroes.”
