Cambridge, MA, Letter Carrier Christopher Paolera

Letter Carrier Christopher Paolera was recently delivering mail in a Cambridge, MA, neighborhood when a police officer on duty at a construction site was struck by a dump truck.

Paolera leaped into action and alerted the driver that the officer was pinned beneath a tire.

While the driver freed the injured man, the Postal Service employee asked a bystander to call 911, used the officer’s radio to request assistance and rendered aid until emergency responders arrived.

The man is recovering from the incident.
