This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Michael Carlo, FDNY, Engine 230, who was killed on September 11, 2001. Michael Scott Carlo's eyes were tracking American Airlines Flight 11 as it tore into the north tower. From the rooftop of his firehouse on the border of Williamsburg and Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, the 34-year-old firefighter from Engine Company 230 had a clear view of the first terrorist attack Sept. 11, his older brother, Robert Carlo of Whitestone, said.

Michael Scott Carlo was deployed to the World Trade Center shortly after his conversation with his older brother.
