Tuscumbia, MO, Rural Carrier Tony Williams

Postal Service employees delivering mail in Missouri and Kentucky recently came to the aid of customers who were hurt.

Tuscumbia, MO, Rural Carrier Tony Williams encountered a man who’d fallen outside his home on a hot day.

The man’s wife wanted to drive him to a hospital instead of calling for an ambulance, but she was unable to lift him.

Williams safely carried the man — whose hip injury required surgery — to the couple’s car.

In Louisville, KY, City Carrier Assistant Kelly Carter discovered a man whose head was bleeding after a fall on his front porch.

Carter called out to a nearby police officer, who contacted 911 while she rendered first aid, comforted the man and shielded him from the sun until emergency responders arrived and took him to a hospital.
