Patrick Swayze - Swayze's Internet Fans Set New World Record

PATRICK SWAYZE fans made history on the first anniversary of his death in September (10) - their internet tributes to the late star earned them a place in the record books.
The acting legend lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on 14 September 2009 and to mark a year since his passing, Swayze's online devotees descended on Facebook.com's Dirty Dancing page to remember the actor.
And the huge amount of postings set a new Guinness World Record.
Officials ruled the fans had made the most ever comments on a single Facebook post, with 10,260 notes left in honour of Swayze.
A post on the social networking site reads, "Thanks to all fans who commented on Patrick's RIP post on September 14th. You all are apart (sic) of contributing towards breaking a World Record for the most comments to a Facebook Post according the Guinness Book Of World Records!"
