GRETA SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Now favorite story of the day the city of San Francisco transforming into Gotham City all to make a child's dream come true. A 5- year-old boy becomes "Batkid" for a day. "San Francisco Chronicle" managing editor, Audrey Cooper, joins us. Nice to see you, Audrey. Tell me this little boy and what was his wish and what happens?
AUDREY COOPER, "SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE": We have not had this much fun in San Francisco since I don't know when. The 5-year-old Miles, he is a kindergartener from Northern California. He has leukemia. He is in remission now, but his wish to the Make-A-Wish Foundation was that he be a superhero for the day and they really pulled out all the stops for him today.
SUSTEREN: So how did it happen? What did he get to do?
COOPER: Well, it started around the beginning of the work day. There was a damsel in distress that was stuck on the cable car tracks in our Knob Hill neighborhood. He saved her. He gets in the Batmobile and it turns out that the Riddler was robbing a bank vault of all Gotham cities residents life savings. So he stopped that. The Riddler got put in jail.
Then he went to have what he thought was going to be a relaxing lunch, but overlook -- at a restaurant overlooking Union Square and there were thousands of Gotham residents down there alerting him to the fact that the Penguin had stolen the mascot of the San Francisco Chronicle or the San Francisco Giants, Lucille.
So he went to AT&T Park, our baseball park here. And he stopped that, he rescued Lucille and duly awarded later by getting the key to the city by the mayor.
SUSTEREN: And, of course, we only have 20 seconds left. Miles is in remission. That's the good news, too?
COOPER: Absolutely, yes. San Francisco can get behind a lot of things especially a 5-year-old in costume, 13,000 people today showed up for it.
SUSTEREN: Audrey, thank you.
COOPER: Thank you.
SUSTEREN: OK, let's all go "Off the Record" for a minute. How great was that story that Audrey told you about it and how about San Francisco? I know a lot of you viewers have taken jabs at San Francisco and I can bet even I folk fun at California cities been scandalized by them. They have lots of problems. Some towns in bankruptcy some teetering on the edge and that's starters.
I think we agree on this one today: San Francisco is our hero city today joining forces with Make-A-Wish Foundation to give Miles the biggest thrill. But it's also a thrill for us sitting on the sidelines watching. It makes it easy getting up in politics and even a bit snarky, especially at a time like this Washington.
Hearing about a child like Miles and city and organization doing things for him puts things in perspective. Itreminds us there is good in the world and there is big good. This is big good. Congratulations to Miles and to San Francisco. Miles, we need you in Washington. That's my "Off the Record" comment. Good night.
