Perilous path

Letter Carrier Matthew Toldness was on the job recently near the Wausau, WI, Post Office when he spotted a 5-year-old girl attempting to cross a busy street by herself.

Toldness approached the child and guided her to safety, then walked her to the Post Office.

The girl told officials she was upset over being ignored at her babysitter’s residence and was trying to go home.

Police were dispatched to the scene and the child was soon reunited with her family.
