Uh oh! Chris Evans got kidnapped and tied up by one of his super fans, Kenny Botting, a sweet little boy who is currently being treated for a brain tumor.

Kenny Botting, 9, got the Christmas surprise of a lifetime when his all-time favorite superhero, Captain America‘s Chris Evans, 33, came to visit him at his apartment in Boston, Massachusetts. How cool!

Chris Evans Surprises ‘Captain America’ Fan, 9, For Christmas

Okay, this may be the coolest thing Captain America has ever done — even if he did get “caught.”

On the Monday after Christmas, Dec. 29, Chris Evans himself popped into Christopher’s Haven where many children stay with their families while they are being treated by Boston’s Mass General Hospital which is right next door, reports their local news affiliate WBZ-TV.

Although he visited with many different children, it was Kenny who was the most excited to see Captain America in the flesh!

When Kenny walked into the room he had no idea that Chris was waiting for him. “Which one of you is Kenny?” Chris asked, and when Kenny identified himself the real-life superhero swooped in to shake the little guy’s hand. So sweet!

Not only did Chris sign autographs and give Kenny some one-of-a-kind memorabilia, he also spent time playing with his #1 fan. Kenny even got to “catch” Captain America and tie him to a chair, how fun!

To help Kenny and his family, visit their GoFundMe page which has already met over $8k of their needed $30k for medical bills.
