This Firefighter Hero WOD was originally published on the CrossFit.com main site as the workout of the day for Friday, June 16, 2017.
Scott “Scotty” Deem, 31, of San Antonio, Texas, was killed while responding to a four-alarm structure fire on May 18, 2017. Deem and his fellow firefighters were searching the building for survivors, but after 11 minutes, Deem sounded a Mayday call. Rescuers were unable to locate him in time.
Deem served with the San Antonio Fire Department for six years. The department is home to a non-profit CrossFit affiliate, where he worked hard to stay in peak physical health. His favorite workouts included “The Chief,” “DT” and “Lynne.”
Deem is survived by his wife, Jennifer; and children, Dakota, Tyler and Aubrey (due August 2017).
