On March 2, 2016, Denver, CO, North Pecos Station City Carrier Robert Batley came across a frightening sight while on his route. He discovered a toddler wandering around in the median of a road.

According to Batley, several cars passed on either side of the child and didn’t stop. Batley knew he had to act fast to take the child out of harm’s way, so he stopped his vehicle, got out and scooped up the diapered 2-year-old. With the toddler’s parents nowhere in sight, Batley called 911 and waited in a safe area.

The child is now safely back at home, thanks to Batley’s quick thinking.

“It was like a movie, but real. I was just glad I was there,” he said. “I’m happy the child is safe. I never expected something like this to happen in my career.”
