9.11 from the water

I know this is not necessary "general trawler" discussion fodder, but I was really touched by this video and this section gets the most views and I thought it would be good if everyone saw this amazing documentary on the roll those who make their living on the waters of NY played in rescuing victims of 9.11.

Did you know that the boat rescue that occurred in Manhattan was the largest sea rescue ever coordinated and it was all unplanned and an all volunteer effort? *Truly amazing story.
