NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — 1010 WINS news anchor Brian Carey has returned to work five months after suffering a brutal beating in his Manhattan apartment.
Elton Anthony, a man Carey identified as his house cleaner and personal assistant, was arrested three days after the attack and charged in the assault.
“The attack itself I don’t remember at all,” Carey, 52, said of the Sept 9, 2013 beating. Carey told 1010 WINS reporter Mona Rivera that he was lucky to be alive. “I was told that I almost died, and they didn’t know the first night whether or not I was going to make it.”
