At 8:46 a.m. Thursday, Darien emergency service personnel and residents bowed their heads in a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives during the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

The service took place at the 9/11 memorial located behind Middlesex Middle School.

Six Darien residents -- Christopher Gardner, Stephen LaMantia, Garry Lozier, William Meehan, Edward Maloney and John Works -- died in the New York attacks.
