This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Captain William Burke, Jr., 46 years old, FDNY, Engine 21, who was killed on September 11, 2001. Capt. Burke called his friend Jean on his way to the World Trade Center. She begged him to stay away and he responded, “This is what I do.” 

On the 27th floor of the North tower, a congregation of firefighters dispersed to find struggling civilians. Suddenly, the building shook and swayed. A shock wave rippled through. Capt. Burke ran to the window and said, “The south tower just collapsed.” Mayday was declared and the firemen began to evacuate. Capt. Burke tried to rescue Ed, bounded in a wheelchair because of quadriplegia and Abe his friend who refused to leave his friend. Capt. Burke wanted to save as many firefighters as he could while refusing to allow Ed and Ab to die alone. He is the only one who died from Engine 21.
