9/11 Boat Lift- an untold part of the terrible day

I love mariners. THIS is the heart of the ocean.

"The Great BoatLift of 9/11" became the largest sea evacuation in history. Larger than the evacuation at Dunkirk in WWII, when 339,000 British and French soldiers were rescued over the course of 9 days. On 9/11 nearly 500,000 civilians were rescued from Manhattan by boat in less than 9 hours."

Narrated by Tom Hanks. 11 minutes. Please watch, very interesting and emotional.
