This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Harvey Harrell, FDNY, Rescue 5, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

The first time Rachel Morio saw Harvey Harrell Jr. — the man she would eventually marry — he was on crutches with a firefighting injury. Two weeks later she saw him in an Emergency Medical Technician uniform, working at a triathlon in Great Kills Park.

In his 22 years with the Fire Department, he participated in countless emergency and search and rescue operations. He was among those who responded to the World Trade Center bombing in 1993. And in 1996, when TWA Flight 800 exploded and crashed off Long Island shortly after takeoff from John F. Kennedy Airport, he was called away from vacation to work as a rescue diver.
