A Postal Service employee in Papillion, NE, recently came to the aid of an 85-year-old customer who’d fallen out of his wheelchair.
Rural Carrier Elizabeth Terrebonne was delivering mail in the man’s neighborhood when she saw that he’d taken a spill in his driveway.
She rushed over to assist him but could not pick him up on her own.
The customer asked Terrebonne to phone his son, but she got no answer, so she enlisted the help of two neighbors to lift the man into his wheelchair.
He later mailed a letter of thanks to the local Post Office.
“Beth was terrific, she was not about to leave me until help arrived,” the man wrote. “You can be proud to have Beth as an employee, and I am lucky to have her deliver my mail!”
Terrebonne called the man “one of the sweetest customers on my route. I was very scared for him.”
Local Customer Services Manager Victoria Krayneski described Terrebonne as “a tremendous mail carrier and person” who is “very good at her job.”
