Business professor Anthony Carter was killed in Staten Island on his birthday according to WTNH. Carter, 62, was killed in a fire at his Staten Island home. Reports say candles sparked the fire.
He ran a program for paired local youth for almost ten years on campus.
His 9-year old tried to save him. He has burns on his hands but expected to be ok.
His colleague, Professor Robert Albright says it was a shock:
“His heart was in the right place. He would do anything to get the students jobs, internships, experiences. He’d do things for the community as well”
