Santa Claus flew down from the North Pole to pay a special visit to children at Victoria General Hospital Thursday afternoon.
Saint Nick was originally supposed to arrive via Helijet earlier this week, but the snow kept him grounded. That didn’t stop him from returning a few days later to deliver teddy bears to the hospital’s littlest patients, including four-year-old Zander George and his seven-year-old sister, Avalon.
Originally from Newfoundland, Zander was admitted to hospital last Saturday after an asthma attack while he and his family were visiting relatives in Victoria. He has since been discharged – just in time for Christmas.
