Summary

Ten true stories of real-life heroes during Hurricane Katrina!

When Hurricane Katrina's flood waters rose, trapping the Bullard family inside their home, 13-year-old Phillip Bullard swam underwater to a submerged window, cleared the debris, and led each family member underwater to the roof. Then he swam to retrieve an abandoned boat and put them in it. He used broomsticks and other debris for paddles and took his family to higher ground.

Terrence Gray of Gulfport, Mississippi, commandeered a rowboat that was floating nearby and dragged it from house to house to save 20 injured, disabled, and elderly people in a terribly flooded neighborhood.

Nurses and doctors at Charity Hospital fought desperately to keep their patients alive for days, despite hunger, pain, heat, little drinkable water and no electricity, waiting desperately for helicopters to evacuate their patients.

These and other real-life heroes risked their lives to save others during Hurricane Katrina. You will never forget their courageous true stories.
