Three Salvation Army bell ringers have set a new record with 105 consecutive hours of ringing each. Salvation Army Major "Butch'' Soriano did his ringing outside of a Wal-Mart in the San Diego area. James Brickson of Minnesota, and Andre Thompson from Texas, matched him hour-for-hour.
Soriano says his reward is the $2,700 he raised during the ringing marathon. The old record was 80 hours. The rules allowed each ringer a five-minute break every hour. Soriano tells UT San Diego he was a bit tired, but not as tired as he thought he would be.
