Traffic stop

Letter Carrier Andres Rendon was recently delivering mail in an Orangevale, CA, neighborhood when he spotted a 20-month-old boy wandering into a busy street, unnoticed by his grandparents nearby.

Rendon leapt into action and safely stopped traffic in both directions.

The toddler’s caregivers soon realized what was happening and retrieved him.

“Quick thinking by Andres averted a potentially devastating situation,” said Orangevale Postmaster Mark Campbell.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
