WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WNCN) — A Wake Forest mail carrier went above and beyond to save packages from a fire last month.
Cellphone video captured her grabbing the packages from the back of her burning United States Postal Service truck.
“Now that I think about what I did, I’m like ‘wow’,” said mail carrier Araceli Santiago.
Despite a 911 dispatcher telling her to get away from the vehicle, Santiago kept taking the boxes out.
“I said ‘I hope I don’t get in trouble for that one’,” Santiago told CBS North Carolina.
