Serious situation

Rural Carrier Janet Medlin was recently delivering mail to a residence in Leola, AR, when she heard a customer yelling for help.

Medlin immediately called 911 and rushed to assist the woman, who was struggling to free her adult son from a tire swing where he had attempted to harm himself.

The Postal Service employee and the woman successfully rescued the man and rendered first aid until emergency responders arrived and took over.

The man recovered from the incident.
