Sharp-eyed save

Bristol, TN, Rural Carrier Associate William Ray

Rural Carrier Associate William Ray was recently delivering mail in Bristol, TN, when he spotted a riding lawn mower overturned against a retaining wall.

Ray stopped and soon saw a man trapped underneath the machine.

The Postal Service employee and another passerby called 911, freed the man and remained on the scene until emergency responders arrived.

“Thankfully the victim was not severely injured,” said local Officer in Charge Lisa Yates. “Since he was down an embankment, he could have been there for some time before he was rescued.”
