Seto rushed to the man’s aid and safely helped him stop the runaway vehicle.
In Enumclaw, WA, an older wheelchair-bound woman approached Rural Carrier Julie Dunlap in a state of panic, indicating that a man who’d just moved into the residence was stealing from her.
The man came soon came outside and told Dunlap to leave, adding that the woman has dementia.
