Nashville, MI, Rural Carrier Julie Hamilton

Rural Carrier Julie Hamilton was recently delivering mail on a cold day in Nashville, MI, when she spotted a shoeless, coatless toddler on a dirt road by himself.

Hamilton sheltered the 2-year-old boy in her vehicle and contacted the local Postmaster, who called 911.

The boy’s father called 911 at the same time, and arrangements were made for the child to be picked up.

Hamilton stayed on the scene until the boy’s mother arrived to retrieve him.

He had wandered a quarter-mile away from home.
