Muddy buddy

City Carrier Assistant Daniel Virgilio was delivering mail at a Danbury, CT, apartment complex on a rainy day last fall when he a spotted a customer facedown on muddy ground.

Virgilio rushed to the woman’s aid and found that she was neither responsive nor breathing.

The Postal Service employee called 911 and followed the dispatcher’s CPR instructions, reviving the customer by the time emergency responders arrived to take her to a hospital.

The woman’s husband later thanked Virgilio for saving her life.
