‘He was so grateful’

Rural Carrier Laurance Lawrence was recently servicing a neighborhood delivery and collection box unit at an apartment complex in Lewiston, ME, when a customer collapsed nearby.

Lawrence rushed to the man’s side, carried him to his apartment and called 911.

Paramedics soon arrived and took the customer to a hospital.

Local Officer in Charge Don Mendell later visited the man — a retired letter carrier — after he returned home.

“He was so grateful and credited Laurance with saving his life,” Mendell said.
