Rural Carrier Marie Moore was recently delivering mail in a Cape Coral, FL, neighborhood when she discovered a customer, Merv Hart, who had collapsed while mowing his lawn.

Moore immediately called 911 and stayed with the customer until paramedics arrived and took him to a hospital.

His wife, Pat, later mailed a letter to the local Post Office.

She attributed Merv’s full recovery to Moore’s alertness and assistance.

“Merv and I both want to thank Marie for her cheerful spirit and quick thinking,” Pat wrote. “She is an important asset to our community, and we are very glad she’s our mail carrier.”
