So one of our friends is Dave Sanderson who was the civilian hero on the Miracle on the Hudson.

And they found that the life raft was full and could not take one other person. Well, the only person who wasn’t in the life raft at that time on that side of the boat was Dave he was half in the plane half out the plane and you know what they said to him. They said let go of the boat push it away from the plane and he’s like, well, yeah, but that would leave me in a sinking plane surrounded by jet fuel. In 35-degree water and so he did he push the boat away from the plane to help others and then he had to swim through jet fuel to get to the boat.
