The Incredible Story of the 9-11-01 Boatlifters – Video – 500000 Rescued

Last year was my first year to hear about these heroic men and women who filled the waters around the island of Manhattan with boats to lift to safety those escaping the devastation. In the video many of them tell the story. You will be riveted.

500,000 were reportedly evacuated by water in a 9 hour period. People were jumping into the river to get away. Some boats came dangerously close to running over them. These water-borne angels knew there could be other attacks at any time but they chose to do the right thing. A full story here, but the video is better.
