Lecturer gives life to save students April 18, 2007

Posted by Al in : people , trackback

In yesterday’s shooting in Virginia Tech 32 people were killed by one, or more, gunmen. One of those who died was Professor Liviu Librescu, who lectured in mechanics. A Romanian born survivor of the holocaust , Professor Librescu held the doors to his lecture theatre shut whilst his students jumped out of the second floor windows to safety. All his students made it out alive – he didn’t. I respect that.
