Batman Hero Christian Bale Visits Colorado Shooting Victims

Christian Bale visits shooting victim Carey Rottman-CRphotoChristian Bale, the hero in the latest Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises,” on Tuesday visited victims of last week’s mass shooting who were wounded in a Colorado theatre where the movie was premiering.

“The patients were really happy to meet Bale,” said a hospital official.

Bale, who also met with Gov. John Hickenlooper, told hospital officials he was visiting the injured but requested them not to tell the media.

Cell phone photos of Bale in area hospitals are popping up on Facebook, like the one above of Carey Rottman.

Meanwhile, a victim’s fund set up in Colorado has topped $2 million, with Warner Bros, the maker of the Batman film, donating a sizable sum, according to NBC Nightly News. Also, three of the five hospitals treating the wounded have waived their co-pays and fees for the uninsured and under-insured.
