Sacramento, CA, Letter Carrier Kao Saephanh

When a postal customer’s wife recently fainted outside their home on a hot day in Sacramento, CA, he not only called 911, he called out to their letter carrier for help, too.

Kao Saephanh came over right away, helped get the woman inside and provided first aid until emergency responders arrived.

Saephanh checked on her a few days later and was “so glad to see her better,” her husband said. “Kao is a special, caring person with a good personality, smiling face and always a ‘How are you doing today?’”

“This man is a keeper,” he added.
