Letter Carrier Aiden Cho was recently stopped at an intersection while delivering mail in Port Washington, NY, when a nearby driver suddenly turned on his hazard lights, got out of his car and approached the postal vehicle.
The man was gasping for air, so Cho asked him, “Are you choking?”
The distressed driver nodded.
Cho immediately got out and performed the Heimlich maneuver on him while a bystander called 911.
The man’s breathing improved and emergency responders soon arrived to provider further assistance.
He later visited the local Post Office to thank Cho for rendering lifesaving aid.
