Retail Associate Stephanie Williams was recently on duty at the Post Office in Baker City, OR, when she grew concerned about a regular customer who was nodding off in a lobby chair.
She checked on the man, who was red-faced and struggling to breathe as he told her a steroid shot he received wasn’t working and he needed medical assistance.
Williams immediately asked a colleague to call 911 while she contacted the customer’s wife to inform her of the emergency.
The Postal Service employee comforted the man until paramedics arrived and took him to a hospital.
“He has been in several times since then to thank Stephanie for saving his life,” said William James, the local customer services supervisor.
