Nightwing is in Bludhaven when hears about the cataclysm in Gotham City and immediately runs to his boat so he can drive over and help in the rescue efforts. He finds several people trapped underground, including a mother and her child. They don't believe that all of them will be able to make it out alive before they are drowned in the flooding waters... Nightwing gets the child out first, and each individual person as quickly as he can, then saves the mother with barely enough time to spare by bursting through the windowpane of an underwater schoolbus. Already tired and sore, he appreciates his small victory and goes off to see where else he can help.
