Christian Bale visits shooting victims
Christian Bale, the actor behind the Batman in The Dark Knight Rises, visited victims of last week's movie theatre shooting as they recovered at the Medical Centre Of Aurora in Denver, Colorado, a spokeswoman for the hospital said.
Emily Crowley confirmed that he was at the hospital Tuesday afternoon but didn't give any details.
Bill Voloch, interim president of the centre, told The Denver Post that Christian spent about two-and-a-half hours there, where he met with five people still being treated for their injuries. Two others victims came from a different facility to meet Christian, Voloch said.
A picture of Christian posing in the hospital next to a young man, identified by The Denver Post as victim Carey Rottman, was posted on the newspaper's website and on Twitter.
Christian also met with doctors, police, paramedics and other first responders to the massacre that resulted when a gunman burst into a movie theater in Aurora, a suburb of Denver, and opened fire on the audience at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and injuring 58 more.
