Phoenix Mail Processing Clerk Corrine Slater

Corrine Slater, a mail processing clerk at the Phoenix Processing and Distribution Center, recently saved a co-worker’s life.

Slater was in the break room when the man started choking on a piece of food.

She rushed to her colleague’s aid and performed the Heimlich maneuver on him.

The procedure dislodged the obstruction and he was able to breathe again.
