Santa hitches ride on helicopter to Burlington

Posted: Updated:

Santa took a trip to Burlington, but he left his sleigh and reindeer at the North Pole. Instead, Santa got a lift in a Customs and Border Protection helicopter.

He came to visit sick kids at the Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington. And, of course, he brought along a few presents.

This is the seventh year that Customs and Border Protection has provided Santa's transportation.

"Since we have connections with Santa and we can fly him in here quickly before his holiday obligations begin, he comes in here and says hi to the kids before he gets down to the hard work," organizer Patrick Jacquet said.

The team from Customs and Border Protection says it is in constant communication with Santa to make sure he gets across the border smoothly.
