Prompted by pileup

Keyser, WV, Letter Carrier Brooke Snyder

Letter Carrier Brooke Snyder was recently making deliveries in a Keyser, WV, neighborhood when she grew concerned about a customer whose mail was piling up.

The man normally checked his mail daily, so Snyder alerted his next-door neighbor, who had a key to his house.

They soon found the customer collapsed inside his home.

Paramedics were dispatched to the scene, and the man was taken to a hospital.

He did not survive.

“Brooke has been, and continues to be, a very attentive carrier,” said Keyser Postmaster Robert Shrout Jr.
