Detroit mail carrier speaks months after being attacked by pit bull, saved by neighbor

DETROIT – A Detroit postal worker attacked by a dog and saved by a good Samaritan has a message about keeping mail carriers safe.

Todd Bridges is speaking for the first time since he was attacked two months ago. There’s a running joke about mail carriers and dogs, but video of Bridges being attacked proved it isn’t a joke.

“A pit bull (was) charging at me full force,” Bridges said.

He’s been a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service for more than two decades, but he’s never spoken to a crowd about something that could have ended his career.

“Each day I try to put it back further — try to do nothing to trigger it,” Bridges said.
