Best that he can do

Green Bay, WI, Rural Carrier Arthur Corey with customer Pat Van Dyke.

Rural Carrier Arthur Corey had just delivered a package to a residence in Green Bay, WI, one day last year when he spotted something amiss as he drove away.

Customer Pat Van Dyke slipped as she went to retrieve the package, and Corey saw her through a storm door, sprawled out on the floor.

Corey rushed back to Van Dyke’s home and safely helped her get back on her feet.

Van Dyke later mailed a letter to the local Post Office.

“If Art hadn’t noticed something didn’t look right and hadn’t come to the door to see what was wrong, I would have been on the floor possibly for hours before anyone walking by or driving past had seen me,” she wrote. “I couldn’t possibly have gotten up by myself. I cannot thank him enough.”
