In late June, a postal customer lost her footing in her home and fell. As hard as she tried to get up, the injuries she sustained prevented her from doing so. She called out for help, but her husband was busy working in a field more than two miles away and couldn’t hear her. Fear began to tighten its grip on her thoughts when her cries for help gained the attention of a familiar face.

Sterling/Burr, NE, Rural Carrier Jimmy Williams was in the process of delivering mail to the customer when he heard the call for help. He immediately rushed to the customer’s side to render aid. The customer told him about her husband’s location in the field and asked Williams to bring him back to the house. Williams agreed and drove to her husband’s worksite. He found the man a quarter of a mile into the field and told him about his wife’s situation. The two returned to the house and called emergency responders shortly thereafter. After he helped secure the woman in the ambulance, Williams returned to his route and finished his deliveries.

Williams’s actions to help his customer set her on a path to make a full recovery from her injuries.
