Saint Nick flying in style

NEW CASTLE, Del. (WPVI) -- Santa Claus traded in his sleigh for something a bit more high-tech in Delaware Wednesday.

Action News was there as jolly old saint neck touched down at the Leach school in a helicopter.

After getting out of the chopper, Santa greeted each of the special needs students with a smile, a high-five, or a hug.

Santa has been making this pre-Christmas trip to New Castle for the past 25 years.
