hannahup101508.jpgLast night the Community Board 1 held a meeting which doubled as an awards ceremony for the SI Ferry workers who saved Hannah Upp. The teacher who went missing from August 29th to September 16th was eventually found floating in the New York Harbor by the ferry workers, and last night she went to honor them herself. During her surprise appearance, she told the SI Advance, "The evening is really about them. I am recovering and grateful for all the support." She was last heard from earlier this month when she updated her Facebook status. Upp also privately visited the men last week, and one of them, Captain Covella, said last night that he "was honored that God chose me and my crew to fulfill their prayers."
