USA: Batkid saves city whilst still battling cancer!

Batkid saved San Francisco from a crime-wave on Friday: saving a damsel in distress, foiling the Riddler's bank heist and arresting the Penguin. The staged super-heroics were organised by the Make-a-Wish Foundation, who granted five-year-old Miles Scott, a leukemia sufferer recovering from his cancer, the chance to fulfill his wish and destiny.

Miles was called into service by the San Francisco mayor and was picked up by Batman, who took the pint-sized superhero on a crime fighting spree. In Union Square, the duo struggled to save an unnamed woman who had been tied to the cable tracks, with what seemed to be an improvised explosive device attached to her. Batkid managed to save her in the nick of time, without the device exploding.

An hour later, Batkid had to once again return to Union Square to fight 'The Riddler' who had height and size advantage, but was successfully beaten by the heart and will of the young hero. As if that was not enough for the day, Miles went on to arrest the infamous Penguin.

Make-a-Wish enlisted the help of thousands for Miles' dream, with the San Francisco Chronicle even running the headline "Batkid Saves City."
