Pedro Pinto, Mountainside, NJ

Mountainside, NJ, Letter Carrier Pedro Pinto noticed mail accumulating in a customer’s mailbox and asked a neighbor to call 911. Emergency responders entered the house and found the woman lying on the floor, where she fell four days earlier. She was dehydrated and needed medical care. Her attorney later sent a letter to the Post Office thanking Pinto. “Had it not been for the diligence of Mr. Pinto, my client could very well have died,” the attorney wrote.
