Clowns cheer up patients at children's hospital

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Georgia Moose Association clown troupe is in town.

The troupe made a special stop at the Backus Children's Hospital. They presented youngsters with stuffed animals and performed magic tricks and helped make their day a little brighter.

"When kids are in the hospital, they're very nervous and scared and don't really have a lot of fun [because of] things going on, so this helped to brighten there day a little bit and make their hospital stay a little easier," said Jennifer Guilliams of Backus Children's Hospital.
