While delivering mail along his route recently, Kansas City, MO, James Crews Station City Carrier Fred Green began to feel ill. Unable to finish his route, he drove back to the station. Green managed to return safely, but he collapsed to the ground soon thereafter.

Retail Associate Tom Murillo rapidly moved to aid Green after his fall. Murillo has Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation training and quickly assessed Green’s situation. Murillo’s evaluation of Green’s vital signs weren’t encouraging and he immediately began performing CPR on Green while other station personnel called 911. When emergency responders arrived, they took over the situation.

Green survived his fall that day, and both he and his family are grateful for Murillo’s assistance. Mid-America District Manager Gail Hendrix and Kansas City Postmaster Jeff Drake presented Murillo with an official letter of appreciation from Postmaster General Megan Brennan for his heroic efforts to save Green’s life.
