Video Documentary: 911 Evacuation by boat


Here is an incredibly moving,  Tom Hanks-narrated, 11-minute documentary of the largest-ever evacuation by boat in history.

In nine hours, boats streaming in from all over the Northeast evacuated 500,000 people trapped on Manhattan Island by the complete shutdown of all trains and bridges in the wake of the fall of the twin towers. (Compare that with history’s second-biggest evacuation, of 339,000 soldiers and civilians from Dunkirk, in WWII, which took nine days.)

People are amazing in times of need!

Enjoy!
