Down and outside

Rural Carrier Associate Courtney Willigar was recently delivering mail on an isolated dead-end road in Monticello, ME, when she spotted an older customer who had fallen outside his home.

The man was being assisted by his sister, who was struggling to get him on his feet.

Willigar stopped to help the duo, and with her aid, the man was able to stand up and safely make his way inside his residence.

The man later called the local Post Office to thank Willigar for getting him out of his predicament in an area where passersby are rare.
