The Kathryn Zox Show Ep. 1382: 9-11 Maritime Rescue
On September 11, 2001, tugs, ferries, dinner boats, and other vessels raced to the rescue from points all across the Port of New York and New Jersey. In less than nine hours, approximately 800 mariners aboard 150 vessels transported nearly 500,000 people from Manhattan. This was the largest maritime evacuation in history and yet the story of this heroic effort has never been fully told.
