Home alone

Rural Carrier Leo McKenna was recently delivering mail in Belding, MI, when he heard a customer shouting in distress.

McKenna stopped to help the man, who had collapsed after cutting his leg with a chainsaw while pruning trees.

The Postal Service employee rushed to the customer’s side, called 911 and comforted him until paramedics arrived.

“The customer was at home alone and didn’t have his phone with him, so Leo may well have averted a tragic outcome,” said Belding Postmaster Renee McCoy.
