Argentina’s Dark Knight

Batman on the beat He is a teacher in La Plata, a city 60 kilometres south of Buenos Aires in Argentina, has a family of three young children and works Monday to Friday. “I can’t say more as I want to keep my identity a secret,” he says. On Friday he transforms himself as Batman, gets into his Batmobile and drives to the ‘Sor Maria Ludovica’ children’s hospital in La Plata. He then proceeds to the hospital’s chapel, prays and moves to the wards armed with drawings and goodies for young patients. Parents and children alike are delighted to see him as he helps spread cheer. He has also helped coordinate programmes where organisations have donated LCD TVs, replaced thermometers and provided other essential medical supplies.
