In Albia, IA, Rural Carrier Mary Conway heard a woman screaming for help as she stood next to a man slumped over the steering wheel of a riding lawn mower.

Conway rushed over and found that the man wasn’t breathing and had no pulse.

While 911 was called, Conway and a neighbor took the man off the mower and performed CPR on him until emergency responders arrived.
