Rural Carrier Wendy Pollard was recently delivering mail in a Comstock Park, MI, subdivision when a little boy startled her.
She had stopped at a mailbox when the 3-year-old ran toward her vehicle, climbed through the driver’s window, tumbled into her lap and grabbed the steering wheel, refusing to let go.
Pollard immediately turned off the engine and honked the horn until the child’s mother came outside, shocked that he had slipped out of the house without her noticing.
The upset customer explained that her son has autism and doesn’t speak, and she was grateful that Pollard kept him safe.
The woman also contacted the local Post Office to express her thanks.
