Nicole Hunt, Johnstown, NY

Hero Nicole Hunt
Judi Gosselin with Johnstown, NY, Letter Carrier Nicole Hunt

Postal Service customer Judi Gosselin still doesn’t know precisely what caused her to collapse recently in the driveway of her Johnstown, NY, home.

But she’s certain of one thing: Nicole Hunt, the letter carrier who came to her aid, is a hero.

“Oh my gosh, she saved my life!” Gosselin told The Leader-Herald, a local newspaper.

Hunt was delivering mail when she discovered the 73-year-old Gosselin facedown and unconscious on the pavement.

She immediately dialed 911 and called out the customer’s name until she came to. Hunt also alerted the local Post Office, which contacted one of Gosselin’s relatives.

Emergency responders soon arrived and rushed Gosselin to a hospital, where she was treated for symptoms including dehydration and low blood pressure.

The customer also told the newspaper that during the past year, she and Hunt had bonded over mutual interests such as the black labs they each own, but they are even closer friends now.

“She’s a sweetheart,” Gosselin said.
