Lomita, CA, Letter Carrier Adrian Gonzalez

Letter Carrier Adrian Gonzalez was delivering mail recently to an apartment building in Lomita, CA, when he heard an infant crying. After boxing the mail, he took a package to one of the units, which turned out to be where the cries were coming from — only there was no answer at the door. Concerned, the postal employee contacted the sheriff’s department, and deputies soon arrived and found that the infant had been left alone in the apartment.
