LAS VEGAS( KLAS)– Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Santa made it extra special Thursday by bringing some holiday cheer to kids inside UMC Children’s Hospital.

Officers joined with Las Vegas Fire and Rescue in escorting Santa to the hospital. Once there, Santa took a ride on the ladder truck up high, so the children could get a glimpse from their hospital windows.
