Hero David Martin

A postal customer in Moorhead, MN, recently became trapped in his garage while working on his car.

Letter Carrier David Martin was the first person to respond to the man’s cries for help. He discovered that the customer had gotten entangled in an electrical cord, fallen and knocked over a large board that had pinned him to the floor for several hours.

The postal employee freed the man and offered to call 911, but the man declined medical attention.

As Martin continued on his route, he alerted a neighbor, who assured him she would check on the man later.
