Lonely lad

Grand Prairie, TX, Rural Carrier Harold Durham

Rural Carrier Harold Durham was delivering mail in Grand Prairie, TX, one day last fall when he spotted a toddler alone at a busy intersection.

Durham stopped to check on the boy, who was around 2 years old, and called 911.

Police officers soon arrived and took custody of the lad, whom Durham visited at the station after work, because he had been upset to leave the Postal Service employee’s side.

The child was later reunited with his family.
