San Francisco transformed into Gotham City on Friday to make a 5-year-old's wish come true.

Miles (aka Batkid) was diagnosed with leukemia when he was just one year old. So, when the Make-A-Wish Foundation learned he wanted to become the caped crusader, they got to work.

7,000 people volunteered their time and effort to give Miles one surreal day as Batkid. The mayor's office, police department, TV stations and thousands of willing and eager San Franciscans helped Miles through his city-saving rescues.

The action was captured on Twitter by Make-A-Wish San Francisco with #SFBatKid
