Beloved Special Olympics Athlete From North Carolina in Icu Battling Covid-19

CONCORD, N.C. (CSU) — COVID-19 is a deadly new virus that has claimed the life of a well-known North Carolina Special Olympics athlete in the ICU.

“He had a smile that would just brighten a room, and we miss it,” his sibling Robin Collyer told CSU in Charlotte.

TJ Carpenter has been on a breathing machine in a hospital in Cabarrus County for more than a week. Because they can’t go see him, his family, like many others since the pandemic began over a year ago, claims it’s even more difficult to manage.

“He has a good spirit and a kind heart, so when I tell you he really doesn’t meet a stranger, it’s the truth,” Collyer said.

Carpenter’s friends and relatives are now attempting to bring some comfort through prayer. On Saturday night, they’re having a prayer vigil outside the hospital.
