This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Carl Bedigian, FDNY, Engine 214, who was killed on September 11, 2001. Sometimes, Carl J. Bedigian did not seem real to the woman who had been his wife for less than a year. A firefighter with Engine 214 in Brooklyn, he once donated his bone marrow to a 4-year-old boy in Europe he had never met, Michele Bedigian said. He had a “magical” smile, and “a beautiful way of making people comfortable around him,” she said. “Sometimes I think he’s an angel. Sometimes I think he wasn’t really a person.”
