Turn for the better

Rural Carrier Associate Jacob Bonner was recently making deliveries in Brownsville, KY, when he spotted a customer facedown near a mailbox.

Bonner rushed to check on the man, who was unconscious and had no pulse, so he immediately turned him over and performed CPR on him until he started breathing again.

The Postal Service employee then flagged down the customer’s son, who was nearby; called 911; and stayed with them until emergency responders arrived.

A family member later contacted the local Postal Office to thank Bonner for his lifesaving efforts.

“She said the man wouldn’t be here today without Jacob’s abilities and heroism,” said Brownsville Postmaster Sheri Puckett.

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