Bigfork, MT, Rural Carrier Cay Reynolds was approaching the last mailbox on her route during a recent snow storm when she noticed a woman lying on the road.
The woman was soaking wet and appeared to be in great pain. Her dog was nearby.
Reynolds wrapped her coat around the woman and called 911. Since the woman was worried about her dog, Reynolds took the animal into the house and returned to the woman, hugging her to keep her warm.
Paramedics took the woman to a hospital, where she was treated for a badly broken leg.
Postmaster Tyler Thompson said, “There is little doubt my carrier is a hero and saved this wonderful woman’s life.”
