Their ears must be ringing too
COLTON, Calif. (AP) - December 9, 2013 (WPVI) -- It's a ringing record -- three times over.
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 Albert Lea, Minnesota, and Andre Thompson of Tyler, 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.
