2 LI men help rescue survivors in Haiti
Two Long Islanders were among a team of 80 FDNY and NYPD rescuers who pulled a young brother and sister out of the rubble in Haiti Tuesday night.
FDNY Chief Joe Downey, of West Islip, e-mailed his wife, Lynn, after the group found an 8-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl alive in the ruins. The rescue group had learned a man was lowering water down to them for a week, keeping them alive.
Lt. William Reddan, of Sayville, is also among the rescuers. His wife, Kirsten, says Reddan was eager to go help rescue survivors in Haiti.
