Dallas District Business Mail Entry Unit Supervisor Andrea Marshall

Dallas District employee Andrea Marshall was driving to work recently when she saw a motorcyclist crash into a vehicle.

“I don’t know what came over me, but I pulled over and jumped out of my car,” said Marshall, a Business Mail Entry Unit supervisor.

The motorcyclist was unconscious but breathing. While another passerby called 911, Marshall began to administer first aid, drawing upon training she received through the Postal Service.

“Without the CPR training … I would not have been able to assist,” she said.

Marshall and others stayed with the injured man until help arrived, and then she went to work. “I was very nervous and shook up, but I finished my day out with a prayer and a smile,” she said.

Marshall never learned the motorcyclist’s identity.

“All I know is that I was in the right place at the right time, and I am so thankful I was able to help,” she said.
