As night falls on the city, Aidid's militants launch a sustained assault on the Americans at the first crash site. The militants are held off throughout the night by air support from Little Bird helicopters, until the 10th Mountain Division's relief column is able to reach and reinforce the American soldiers. The wounded and casualties are evacuated in the tanks, but a few of Rangers and Delta Force soldiers are forced to run on foot from the crash site. Finally after fighting through militia forces, they reach the Pakistani Compound in the UN Safe Zone.
The end titles detail the immediate aftermath of the mission and end of military operations in Somalia. Including Michael Durants release after 11 days of captivity. At which point President Clinton withdrew all US forces from Somalia.
