The city of San Francisco is being rescued from paying the cost of staging the "Batkid" fantasy that captured the imagination of North Americans.

Philanthropists John and Marcia Goldman are picking up the city's $105,000 tab for allowing Miles Scott, a 5-year-old Northern California boy with leukemia, to fight villains and rescue a damsel in distress as a caped crusader in November.

City officials say most of the money went toward renting a sound system, video screens and other equipment to accommodate the large crowds that turned out to see "Batkid"

The elaborate fantasy was arranged by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
