BELTON, Mo. — A mailman and his concern may have recently saved the life of a 96-year-old Belton woman.
An elderly woman fell in her home and was unable to call for help. Chris Feldhaus, who has been a mailman for 15 years, noticed her mail piling up and decided to check on her.
He tried knocking on her door; no one answered. So he went to the property manager who called police.
“She had fallen, and they don`t know how long she had been there, but it had been a least a couple days,” Feldhaus adds. “She`s in her mid-90s, so she was unable to get up and get anything to eat or drink or even get the phone.”
The elderly woman is recovering in a nearby hospital.
