Retail Associate Willie Jones was recently on duty at the Ocklawaha, FL, Post Office when a customer passed out during a transaction.

Jones leaped over the counter to catch the man before he hit the floor, then he called out to the Postmaster to bring a chair.

Jones cared for the man — who soon came to — while the Postmaster called 911 and his neighbors.

When emergency responders arrived, Jones urged the customer to go to a hospital as a precautionary measure.

As he left with paramedics, the man thanked Jones for his quick assistance.
