Santa flies in for special visit to Bellingrath Hills Elementary

CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) - Santa made a very special stop by a school in Central today.

Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived at Bellingrath Hills Elementary School in style thanks to the good folks over at Acadian Air Med. The couple was there bringing Christmas cheer to more than 450 pre-k and kindergarten students an area hit hard by recent flooding.

"It excited the kids to see Santa making a special visit to see them just before Christmas to bring some good tiding. It really it excites us too. If you look at the adults, they are just as excited along as many of the kids are," said Constable Reginald Brown.

Each of the kids also got a special gift during Santa's visit.
