Greensburg, PA, Letter Carrier Peter Rodocaj became concerned when he saw mail piling up in a customer’s mailbox. He called police and asked for a wellness check. They entered the house and found her on the bedroom floor in dire need of medical care. She was taken to the hospital and placed in intensive care, where she was treated for a broken shoulder and other ailments. The woman’s family and friends were grateful for Rodocaj’s diligence. “Pete’s actions saved her life,” her neighbor said.
