Letter Carrier Randall Patterson was recently delivering mail in Anthony, KS, when he heard a customer cry out for help from inside her home.

Patterson discovered the woman’s husband facedown on the floor. The woman — who had suffered a broken knee just one day earlier — was unable to provide assistance.

The Postal Service employee called 911 and rendered first aid to the man, a cancer patient who had collapsed during an apparent seizure and cut his head.

Patterson comforted the couple until emergency responders arrived and took over.
