Letter Carrier Pamela Race was recently delivering mail in Geneva, NY, when she saw an alarming sight:
A car with no visible driver coasted toward her before slamming into a utility pole guard wire.
Race stopped and rushed to the vehicle, where she found an unresponsive man in the driver’s seat.
The Postal Service employee immediately called 911 and remained on the scene until emergency responders arrived.
“Because Pamela was in the right place at the right time, she was able to get emergency services to save the life of this man, who had overdosed while driving,” said Geneva Postmaster Vernon Ficcaglia.
