Welles Crowther- The man with the Red Bandana!

The people he helped only knew him as "the man in the red bandanna. He died when the tower collapsed.

Early life Welles Remy Crowther was the first born of three children. When Welles was 6 years old, his father gave him a red bandana that would become Crowther's trademark which he wore under all of his sports uniforms in high school. I wanted you to know that I'm OK. Young had been one of about people waiting at a bank of elevators to evacuate when the plane hit the tower and among the few survivors. The survivors followed him 17 floors down, where he dropped off the woman he was carrying before heading back upstairs to assist others.

By the time he returned to the 78th floor, he had a bandana around his nose and mouth to protect him from smoke and haze. He then announced to that group, "Everyone who can stand, stand now. If you can help others, do so. They confirmed from photographs the identity of the man who aided them. Crowther's parents, with the support of a Michigan foundation, created the Red Bandana Project, a character-development program for classrooms, sports teams, camps and youth programs.

The family also established the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust, with which they fund charitable work. Boston College players wore helmet stickers featuring Crowther's signature red bandana during the game, and Crowther's sisters, Honor Fagan and Paige Crowther, were introduced to the crowd during the third quarter. They didn't know where he came from. But they knew their lives had been saved by the man in the red bandana.

He called for fire extinguishers to fight back the flames. He tended to the wounded. He led those survivors down the stairs to safety, and carried a woman on his shoulders down 17 flights. Then he went back. Back up all those flights. Then back down again, bringing more wounded to safety. Until that moment when the tower fell.
