Storyline

On 9/11, American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower between the 93rd and 98th floors ... 1,355 people died at or above the crash site. No one survived. United Airlines Flight 175 struck the South Tower 17 minutes later between floors 77 to 85 killing 599 people. Miraculously, 18 occupants of the South Tower at or above the crash site crossed the line of death and made it to safety below. This is the story of the one man, Welles Remy Crowther, responsible for saving many of these 18 survivors. Welles was a volunteer fireman as a high school student. He then attended Boston College and played lacrosse. After he graduated, he took a job at Sandler O'Neil & Partners, a Wall Street firm. He worked on the 104th floor of the South Tower. Welles was a fun-loving person who enjoyed giving more than receiving. Viewers will instantly like him. Welles' identity became known because his survivors described being saved by a man wearing a red bandana in a May 2002 New York Times Article. His... Written by Matthew J. Weiss

A hero, A legacy
13 September 2017 | by nikki1211-852-408042See all my reviews

After reading The Red Bandanna by Tom Rinaldi, I felt a strong urge to know more about Welles's story. The very next day I bought tickets to view Man in Red Bandana. I was 20 years old when 9/11 happened and I have not seen footage of the actual day since the first day when I watched the 2nd tower fall on TV. Re-watching the footage in the documentary brought me back to that time when my innocence of youth was forever changed.

The documentary includes other survivors accounts of that day in the South Tower and how a man named Welles Crowther risked his own life to save others. He was only 24 years old with a life ahead of him and it pains me that he, along with the others who lost their lives that day, will never get another day. I am grateful that his documentary was made. It will never bring Welles' or the others back, but it gave the Crowther's a special gift- their son will be a legacy for years to come. I know that does not make it any easier, but I hope they found peace in knowing they raised a magnificent, selfless man.
