Rochester, NY, Letter Carrier Steve Siverd

Letter Carrier Steve Siverd was recently delivering mail in a Rochester, NY, neighborhood when he discovered a note in a customer’s mailbox.

The message indicated that the man had harmed himself in the garage, so Siverd immediately notified a supervisor, who called 911.

Siverd remained on the scene until emergency responders arrived, revived the man and took him to a hospital.

The local sheriff later thanked Siverd for his life-saving response to the situation.
