Belt, MT, Rural Carrier Associate Penelope Walker and a co-worker were recently enjoying a favorite free-time pursuit, deer hunting, when a medical crisis interrupted their adventure.

Walker discovered her friend collapsed and unresponsive on the ground — and considering their remote location, the situation was especially life-threatening.

Walker sent the man’s nephew, who was on the trip with them, to locate a cellphone signal and call 911 while she performed CPR.

The immediate medical attention stabilized the man, and Walker stayed with him until emergency responders reached them two hours later.

The man is recovering.
