ARVADA, Colo. (CBS4) – This is a story of being in the wrong place at the right time, and going above and beyond.
Ben Garcia, a USPS mail carrier in Arvada, was delivering packages on Sunday, Feb. 4 in a developing neighborhood on the northwest side of the city. He had one package left when he made a mistake.
“I turned down one street too early,” he said.
Yet his wrong turn came at the right time for Connie Nolan.
“Ben was my guardian angel that day,” Nolan told CBS4’s Kelly Werthmann.
Twenty minutes before Garcia realized he wasn’t on the right street, Nolan had slipped on her icy driveway, fracturing her leg.
