ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. – A postal worker rescued a toddler in the middle of a street Wednesday.
Letter carrier Robert Batley was driving on Zuni Street, near U.S. 36, when he saw the young girl in a diaper walking in the median.
Batley said he pulled up next to the girl, put his car’s blinkers on and scooped the child up.
Batley said he pulled over and called 911. He said no one came looking for the child, so he gave the child to a sheriff’s deputy.
“I never expected something like this to happen in my career,” Batley said. “It was like a movie, but real. I was just glad I was the one that I was there.”
The United States Postal Service said the child is back home safe thanks to Batley’s quick thinking.
