The hot summer months can be a welcomed season for those who enjoy outdoor activities. The heat can quickly turn an enjoyable experience into a dangerous one, however, as an 85-year old Schuyler, NE, customer recently discovered.

Marvin S. ventured out into his back yard late one sunny morning to tend to his yard, but after 45 minutes, pain from a recent injury overwhelmed him and he fell to the ground. The intense heat of the sun compounded the problem, and the combination of the two factors prevented him from standing. Marvin called out for help, desperately hoping for someone to come to his aid. His pleas for assistance were eventually heard by Columbus, NE, City Carrier Assistant Aaron Muller.

Muller was supporting the Schuyler Post Office with deliveries that day when he heard Marvin’s calls for help. He immediately raced to Marvin’s side and helped him into the house. After placing him in a comfortable sitting position, Muller offered the gentleman a glass of water and a cool towel. Muller then called Marvin’s family as well as the paramedics to make sure he would receive the care he needed.

Not long after he made a full recovery, Marvin called the Schuyler Post Office and expressed his gratitude for Muller’s efforts to acting Postmaster Shy Jasper.

“In my mind, he saved my life,” said Marvin. “He’s a special young man.”
