Rainfall rescue

Colorado Springs, CO, Letter Carrier Viktor Luna

Letter Carrier Viktor Luna was delivering mail on a stormy day last summer in Colorado Springs, CO, when he spotted a boy in trouble.

The lad had been riding his bicycle on a neighborhood street when he got caught in a downpour, falling into a gutter and struggling against rushing rainwater.

Luna hurried to the boy’s aid, helping him up and guiding him home, narrowly avoiding a severe hailstorm.

The child’s parents thanked the Postal Service employee for the rescue.

A neighbor noticed, too, and later called the local Post Office to commend Luna for ensuring the boy’s safety.
