The Heroes of Hurricane Sandy
INSIDE EDITION takes a look at the heroes who risked their lives to help save others during Hurricane Sandy.
The heroes of Hurricane Sandy are regular people who were caught in extraordinary situations and came through for their neighbors in need.
Hurricane Sandy took many things away, but not our humanity and in a crisis like this, heroes come in all shapes and sizes.
One man risked his life to rescue a deer caught in the violent surf on the Jersey Shore.
Lydia Callis, the sign-language interpreter for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, she's so passionate and expressive that she's inspired a tribute video on YouTube.
Then, there are the heroes of the sky. Helicopter crews from the New York Police Department risking life and limb to rescue Staten Island residents stranded on their rooftops.
Some heroes lost their lives helping others. Off-duty police officer Artur Kasprzak drowned in his basement after rescuing seven members of his family from the storm surge. Photographer Lauren Abraham was electrocuted while taking pictures of the storm's aftermath. Jacob Vogelman and Jessie Streich-Kest were killed by a falling tree while walking their dog, Max.
In the midst of sorrow, there is always hope as expressed by Broadway actors gathering in Times Square to sing the theme from Annie, with hope for better days ahead they sang, "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow."
