Persistence Saves Life in Minnesota

deb koskela

As Frazee, MN, Rural Carrier Debbie Koskela was delivering mail, one of her elderly customers greeted her. Koskela asked the woman how she was doing and was told that she felt “short of breath.” Koskela suggested she call an ambulance, but the woman felt this would be an inconvenience for them, and she’d be all right. Koskela persisted, and was finally able to convince the woman to get checked out.

After she was examined, the woman was taken to the hospital in Fargo, as she had suffered a mild stroke, and has since recovered.

The woman’s family later called Koskela to update her, and later sent her a note, thanking her for being “Mom’s Angel.”
