BISMARCK, N.D. - Children undergoing treatment at Sanford Health in Bismarck had a surprise guest.

Orlando Melendez, or "El Gato," a member of the Harlem Globetrotters, toured the halls of the pediatric ward. He showed off his moves, cracked jokes, and worked to put smiles on kids faces.

"It was an awesome opportunity for our little man here. Dealing with all this and he was able to kind of uplift our spirits a little bit, and put a smile on his face, and show us something cool that we've never seen before," said Steve Tormaschy, Dickinson.

The Harlem Globetrotters will be playing at the Bismarck Event Center on Nov. 2.
