Former Air Force pararescueman Mike Maroney is looking for a little girl he saved during Hurricane Katrina over ten years ago. Maroney and the little girl are pictured above in a photo taken after the end of a rescue mission on September 6, 2005. Maroney rescued the little girl and her six family members by hoisting them from their flooded New Orleans neighborhood.
