The largest sea evacuation in history is one of the lesser known stories of 9/11 - eleven years ago today. Nearly 500,000 civilians were rescued from Manhattan by boat in less than a day.

BOATLIFT was executive produced by Stephen Flynn and Sean Burke and premiered on September 8th at the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit: Remembrance/Renewal/Resilience in Washington.
