Londonderry, VT, Postmaster Victoria Girouard was recently filling in for a sick carrier when she noticed something out of the ordinary while delivering a package to an older customer’s home.
Girouard spotted the woman’s blinds moving strangely, and upon closer inspection, she saw her lying on the floor inside.
The Postal Service employee immediately called 911. Finding the doors locked, she returned to the window to assure the customer that help was on the way.
Paramedics soon arrived to treat the woman, who had fallen five hours earlier.
