Katrina: survivor first-hand account from Charmaine Neville

Emotional video interview of Charmaine Neville. Found on BoingBoing.

Famed musician and New Orleans native Charmaine Neville's account of being stranded, attempting to rescue others, and "being treated like animals" by the federal authorities who were tasked with protecting and saving citizens. Ms. Neville broke into a school bus, packed it with survivors -- some of whom were disabled persons confined to wheelchairs -- and drove them out of the city.
