New City, NY, City Carrier Assistant Robert Korba Jr.

City Carrier Assistant Robert Korba Jr. was recently picking up outgoing parcels from a customer at her New City, NY, home when he made a startling discovery.

As Korba turned to leave, he spotted the woman’s husband collapsed in the driveway.

Korba immediately called 911 for the distraught woman and performed CPR on the man until emergency responders arrived and took over.

A police officer later told Korba that the man was hospitalized in critical condition but had a chance at survival, thanks to timely CPR efforts.

The man died several days later, giving his family members an opportunity to spend time with him at the end of his life.
