Batman star Christian Bale visits shooting victims

AURORA, Colo. (AP) -

Batman star Christian Bale is in Colorado visiting survivors of the shooting at a theater showing "The Dark Knight Rises."

Wisconsin native Carey Rottman, one of the 58 people injured in Friday's shooting, posted two photos of himself with Bale on his Facebook page after the actor's visit Tuesday. Hospital staff also posted a Facebook photo of Bale with some staff members.

There had been an online campaign urging Bale to visit survivors of the shooting.

Bale also visited a makeshift memorial to the victims near the theater. He walked past the 12 crosses erected for each of the slain victims, with many people there not realizing who he was.

President Barack Obama and members of the Denver Broncos also have made hospital visits to some of the survivors.
