On the ball

St. Louis Letter Carrier Edward Rader was enjoying time off from work in February when the day’s events took a serious turn.

Rader was playing indoor soccer with a group of senior citizens, and a fellow athlete collapsed.

While 911 was called, Rader helped perform CPR on the man.

Paramedics soon arrived and took the man to a hospital.

He is recovering from the incident, and Rader recently spotted him at a game — this time as a fan.
