Seven-Year-Old Boy Felt Like ‘Spiderman’ After Rescuing His Elderly Neighbor

When we were children, we often wished that we had superpowers. It seems as if some children do have those powers, they just need an opportunity to use them.

A seven-year-old boy named Jayden was able to demonstrate his superpowers, which happened to be his “super stretchy” arms.

In doing so, he was able to save his 79-year-old neighbor, Stella Thorley.

It started when Thorley fell down in the middle of the night and couldn’t get back up, according to the Cheshire Live. Her daughter had been trying to get into the home for an hour, but there was a key stuck in the door.

Jayden offered to help and he was able to get his arms in far enough to get the key back again.

They gained entry to the home, and Thorley was safe. She did require medical attention but she is doing well.

On the other hand, Jayden was able to save his neighbor and save the day.

He admitted that to the Cheshire Live that it “hurt really really a lot” and he had some cuts and bruises but he said it felt amazing when they were cheering.

He said he felt a bit like “Bendy Spider-Man,” his favorite superhero.
