Buying time

Coweta, OK, Rural Carrier Associate Jennifer Lee

Jennifer Lee, a rural carrier associate in Coweta, OK, was recently on her way home from work when she came upon the scene of a collision between a motorcycle and a car.

When 911 was called, Lee stopped to render aid to the gravely injured biker, performing CPR on him, restoring his pulse and stabilizing him until paramedics arrived to take over.

Although a crowd had gathered around the man, “nobody else knew what to do,” Lee later told a local TV station.

“I believe everybody should have basic training,” she said. “I came along at the right time.”

The Postal Service employee’s actions gave the motorcyclist’s family time to see him in the hospital over the next few days before he died.
