Letter Carrier Joy Cordell was recently making deliveries in an Eaton Rapids, MI, neighborhood when she saw two visibly upset children exit a house.
Cordell asked what was wrong and one replied: “My mommy has fallen and isn’t waking up.”
The Postal Service employee rushed inside and found a woman on a bathroom floor with her husband by her side, trying to rouse her.
While the couple’s son called 911, Cordell advised the man that CPR was needed.
While he performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on his wife, Cordell administered chest compressions to the woman until emergency responders arrived and took over.
She did not survive.
