Hero WOD: “Petrina”
Police Officer Michael Petrina, 25 years old,Â was killed May 10, 2014 while assisting a Tennessee Department of Transportation Help truck operator with an accident at the Old Hickory Boulevard exit when he was struck by a motorhome carrying a trailer.Â Petrina became trapped under the trailer and died at the scene.
His family said since he was a little boy, all he wanted to do was become a police officer. This weekend, they said he died doing what he loved to do: serving the community. â€œHe was my little brother, but he was my Mikey. He was my hero,â€ said Anthony Petrina. You could feel the pain and heartbreak Anthony Petrina is going through. His little brother, Michael, was struck and killed by a motor-home while trying to direct traffic on Interstate 65 in Nashville on Saturday. â€œHe was helping someone. He was doing what he did,â€ Anthony said. Michael had just joined the Nashville police force a few months ago. Before that, he was a University of Memphis student and a member of the Tennessee National Guard. â€œHe was just getting started. I mean, all his life he was Army Man Mike,â€ Anthony said. â€œMichael embodied everything you want.â€Â
“He was better than any of us,” Officer Austin Bass told the law officers who filled the pews of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Germantown. While they were training together, Bass said, Petrina became a shining example for the recruits. He ran laps, aced tests and cheered his colleagues on with a wide smile and unflagging energy. PetrinaÂ is survived by his parents, Jim and Joyce Petrina; brother, Anthony Petrina; sister-in-law, Alyssa Clemmons and grandmothers, Bertha Petrina and Rosie Varga.
