In a fix

Rural Carrier Associate Jayson Himes was recently delivering mail in Neoga, IL, when he spotted a truck outside a residence rolling backward with its hood up.

Upon closer inspection, Himes found that a customer had been crushed by the vehicle while working on it.

The Postal Service employee immediately called 911 and comforted the man until paramedics arrived.

The customer was flown to a hospital, and doctors credited Himes with saving the man’s life.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
