This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Walter Hynes, FDNY, Ladder 13, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

On the morning of September 11th, Walter called home as his rig left the firehouse at 85th Street and Lexington Avenue. He was on his way downtown. He said in his message to his wife, “I don’t know if we’ll make it out. I want to tell you that I love you and I love the kids.”

Walter Hynes valiantly gave his life on the morning of September 11, 2001, while assisting victims of the World Trade Center attack. Walter was a family man, as well as a jack-of-all-trades. In addition to his job with the FDNY of 22 years, he was also a practicing attorney and the co-owner of a restaurant in Rockaway Beach. In his earlier years, he had worked as a firefighter in Brownsville, Brooklyn, and put himself through law school at St. John’s University at night.
