Participants tie bandannas together to break record in honor of fallen 9/11 hero Welles Remy Crowther

Welles Remy Crowther, a 24-year-old equities trader who worked for Keefe Bruyette & Woods atop Tower 2 of the World Trade Center, saved several people on 9/11 by donning a red bandanna and leading people to exits from the 78th floor.

He was honored this week in Central Park by the tying together of 10,920 bandannas — enough to represent, in feet, the height of both World Trade Center towers.

The bandannas set a world record, reports Elizabeth Elizalde in the New York Daily News.
