Heart of Stone

Letter Carrier Melody Stone was recently delivering mail in Elkin, NC, when she heard a customer yelling for help.

Stone rushed to aid the man, who was pinned underneath a lawn mower.

She immediately called 911, safely freed the customer and comforted him until emergency responders arrived.

He was hospitalized for treatment of a head injury and 11 broken ribs.

His wife later said that paramedics credited Stone with saving the man’s life.
