Heroes’ corner

Harbor Springs, MI, City Carrier Assistant Minda Fryczynski was delivering mail recently when she saw a customer lying on the ground surrounded by a swarm of bees.

Fryczynski called 911 and used her jacket to fend off the bees, who began attacking the man while he was walking his dog. He was stung more than 20 times.

Emergency responders arrived and rushed the man to a hospital, where he was treated.

The man later stated that he doesn’t know what would have happened if Fryczynski hadn’t rescued him. He said he was very grateful for her help.
