Video: Alert mail carrier credited with saving customer’s life

BARBERTON, Ohio– An elderly man is alive thanks to the woman who delivers his mail.

“Last Tuesday, I noticed he hadn’t gotten his mail in two days, which was really unlike him so I kind of knew something wasn’t right then,” said Heather Rae with the United States Postal Service. “I knocked on his door that day and still no response.”

After a few days of pounding on the senior’s door with no response she alerted Barberton police, who along with the help of firefighters, got inside through a window Friday. Officials found the man injured on his bathroom floor where it appeared he had been for several days.
