Scott Depot, WV, Rural Carrier Jason Francis

Rural Carrier Jason Francis was delivering mail recently in Scott Depot, WV, when he encountered a distressed woman in the middle of the road.

She flagged him down and asked him to help a man in her car who was unresponsive following an overdose.

While the woman called 911, Francis parked his vehicle and assessed the situation. With the help of a bystander, he removed the man from the car and started CPR.

A nurse who lives in the neighborhood soon came by and determined that the victim had a pulse and was breathing sporadically.

The man was revived fully when emergency responders arrived and administered an overdose antidote.
