This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Andrew Brunn, FDNY, Ladder 5, who was killed on September 11, 2001. Marie Losito fretfully watched her son answer his calling in life. She "had concerns" in 1989 when she accompanied him to 1 Police Plaza, where he took a test to join the New York Police Department. "He was only 16 then," she said. "To be that young and to want to help people the way he did, he must have had a real understanding of what he wanted to do."
So her son, Andrew Christopher Brunn, chose to become a police officer, and later a firefighter, because "he thought he could do more good helping people," his mother said.
His dedication cost him his life: Brunn, 28, was one of 343 firefighters who died in the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
