Ohio postal worker awarded Postmaster General Award for Heroism

OAKWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – A postal worker was recognized for heroic actions assisting one of his customers on his route.

Friday morning, Bryan Burton, an Oakwood letter carrier for USPS was presented with the Postmaster General Hero Award for immediately rendering first aid to slow the bleeding of a customer who was injured in a seizure.

“Walking into a situation like that is never easy but when you do, basically, you do what you’ve got to do,” said Burton.

Burton said he was just making his rounds on January 9th, when he walked into the Vaporcast vape shop.

He saw the owner on the ground with blood coming out of his head after suffering a seizure and falling.
