About the wod
Background: This hero workout is dedicated to three Italian firefighters, Antonio Candido, Marco Triches and Matteo Gastaldo, all of the Alessandria Fire Brigade, who were killed in the line of duty on November 5, 2019, when an intentional explosion collapsed the building they were in.
At the time of their deaths, the three were at a farmhouse in Quargnento, a town in the Monferrato area, checking on a possible gas leak. According to this article a number of explosions suddenly erupted, apparently caused by a series of propane tanks that appeared to be intentionally placed to cause a fire. The explosions collapsed the building, killing the firefighters.
This is one of the most serious incidents in the history of the Italian National Fire Department.
