Rochester, NY, Letter Carrier Jason Cousineau

Letter Carrier Jason Cousineau was delivering mail recently in a Rochester, NY, neighborhood when he saw an alarming sight.

Twin toddlers were running down the middle of the street, straight toward an intersection.

Cousineau ran after the two 2-year-olds and stopped them, but he saw no sign of a caregiver in the vicinity.

The Postal Service employee called 911 and stayed with the children until police arrived.
