Letter Carrier Kelly Elliott was recently delivering mail in Morehead City, NC, when she spotted a customer, Ida Spada, who had fallen outside her home.
Elliott rushed to check on Spada, called 911 and comforted her until emergency responders arrived.
Spada later mailed a card to the local Post Office to thank Elliott for her assistance.
“You were the angel I was praying for,” she wrote. “I am so lucky that my injuries were not worse. Please know how very grateful I am for your help.”
