Arvada, CO, Rural Carrier Associate Benjamin Garcia

Rural Carrier Associate Benjamin Garcia was recently delivering packages on a secluded street in Arvada, CO, when he spotted a customer in trouble.

The woman had gotten stranded underneath a boat parked in her driveway after she’d slipped on ice and fractured her pelvis.

As soon as Garcia saw the customer waving for help, he rushed to her side and phoned her daughter, who soon arrived and took her to a hospital.

The customer, who feared that no one would find her for a long time, is recovering.

“I’m just glad I was there,” Garcia said.
