Wallace, WV, Retail Associate Daniel Clutter was serving a regular customer and sensed something wasn’t right.
The man was talking nonsense and even swearing. When Clutter asked if he was OK, the customer appeared to be on the verge of tears and couldn’t explain what was going on.
Clutter called 911. Emergency personnel responded and tried to gauge the man’s blood sugar levels but the battery in their glucose monitor had died.
The postal employee removed the battery in a calculator and gave it to the rescue team to try.
It worked, and the rescue team was able to determine that the customer’s glucose levels were dangerously high.
The customer agreed with that assessment and was taken to the hospital via ambulance.
