While delivering mail in Ola, AR, recently, Rural Carrier Sherry Hastings noticed a customer waving his arms frantically.
The man had been riding a lawn mower when he struck a heavy cable. The cable became stretched across his abdomen, trapping him.
Hastings called 911 and stayed with the man until paramedics arrived and took him to a hospital, where he recovered.
The man’s fiancé later visited the Post Office and wrote a letter to thank Hastings.
