LOS ANGELES — St. Nick temporarily traded in his usual mode of transportation to take flight in style – hovering over California in a Los Angeles Police Department helicopter before making gift deliveries to a local children’s hospital.

FOX Los Angeles reported the LAPD’s SWAT team helped Santa deliver presents to The Luskin Orthopaedic Institute for Children as part of its annual "Toys and Joys" celebration.

Video footage shows Santa sitting on the chopper’s landing skid before being dropped off on the hospital’s rooftop.

Santa then repelled down the side of the hospital building to greet kids before taking photos and delivering toys.
