When New York's NYU Langone Medical Center lost power and began to flood from the effects of Superstorm Sandy, the doctors and nurses had to act fast. What followed was a series of small acts of bravery: Nurses clutched newborn babies and shepherded patients into waiting ambulances.

Four of the nurses sat down with CNN's Elizabeth Cohen to discuss the trying and triumphant moments.
