Welles Remy Crowther (May 17, 1977 – September 11, 2001) is best known for saving at least a dozen lives during the September 11 attacks in New York City. Crowther, the eldest of three children, was born in New York City, New York, on May 17, 1977 at Lying-In Hospital. He attended Nyack High School where he was an honor roll student and later attended Boston College, where he earned a B.A. in economics in 1999. One of his prized possessions, which he carried everywhere, was a red bandana given to him by his father. He played a number of sports including lacrosse, ice hockey, and soccer. Crowther was also camper at Camp Becket YMCA in Becket, Massachusetts, a boy scout in his youth and a volunteer firefighter in his hometown of Nyack, New York. Crowther worked for Sandler O'Neill and Partners on the 104th floor of the South Tower. Witnesses report that after the plane hit, Crowther, with a red bandanna covering his mouth and nose to protect him from debris, reentered the building at least three times to rescue people. He is directly responsible for saving the lives of at least 12 people.
