St. Petersburg Times: Photo gallery   The man that keeps on hoping
 
Search and rescue volunteer Mike Mahoney, 27, listens for signs of life in the Gentilly section of New Orleans. Mahoney has been on a one-man mission to save people still trapped in their homes. The first two days he volunteered with FEMA after the levee broke. Frustrated with the bureaucracy, on his third day he struck out on his own. Mahoney says he has helped save 214 people.
