Babe in the woods

Rural Carrier Becky Woolard was recently delivering mail in Bath, NC, when she spotted a toddler in trouble:

The 3-year-old had taken a wooded path to their grandparents’ house next door, but no one was at home at the time.

Woolard walked the toddler back along the path, and the mother was unaware her kid had wandered off.

“This could have been a different story if the child had gotten lost in the woods,” said Bath Postmaster Wendy Baker.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
