Power Ranger window washers surprise children at hospital – USA TODAY
The image of a little girl flexing her muscles for a trio of window-washing Power Rangers about says it all.
The girl and other patients at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia were paid a visit by the Power Rangers on Tuesday, who just happened to be washing the windows of the west Philadelphia building.
Children, their families, and staff flocked to their windows as the crew descended from eight stories down, paying each floor a visit and a swinging performance. Some of the children held up signs and waved at the Power Rangers through the glass.
The window washers from Jenkintown Building Services, apart from their usual window washing rounds, dress up once a year to entertain patients at CHOP, which, founded in 1855, was the first hospital devoted to children.
In the past, crews have gone as the Ninja Turtles, Spiderman and Captain America.
Marty Tuzman, the owner of Jenkintown Building Services, said visiting the hospital inspires the company to keep the tradition.
“Every time we’re at CHOP,” Tuzman said. “I’m just amazed at what the kids go through, what the services put on by the staff are.”
The interaction between the children and swinging washers is “really special,” he said. The kids and the washers, he said, are real superheroes.
“It takes the kids out of the moment and takes them to a higher moment,” he said. “We love doing it.”
