SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Seven years ago "Batkid" saved San Francisco.

On November 15, 2013, the wish of then five-year-old Miles Scott, who was battling leukemia, came true as he became Batman's sidekick, "Batkid."

More than 16,000 volunteers helped turned Miles' "Make-A-Wish" into a reality by transforming San Francisco into "Gotham City."
