As the World Trade Center buildings burned and collapsed on September 11, 2001, a half million people were evacuated from Lower Manhattan by a civilian flotilla of ferries, tug boats and other vessels in what has become known as the largest boatlift in history. BOATLIFT – An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience is a touching tribute to that effort.

In this short film, Tom Hank narrates the epic story of the 9/11 boatlift when local the local maritime community to sprung into action to help their fellow New Yorkers and Americans. The film is executive produced by Stephen Flynn and Sean Burke and premiered on September 8, 2011 on the tenth anniversary of the attacks.

We like to post this video every September 11th to remember and honor the role that these ship captains and crews played on that day in 2001. Never forget!
