Letter Carrier Garrett O’Conner was recently delivering mail in Avon, OH, when he noticed that an older customer’s garbage cans were not outside as usual.

O’Conner decided to check on the woman, and he soon heard her yelling for help.

Finding the doors locked, the Postal Service employee called 911 and stayed on the scene until emergency responders arrived to rescue the customer, who said she’d fallen two days earlier.

“Garrett takes pride in everything he does, and his integrity is extraordinary,” said Avon Postmaster Marquitta Hayward.
