Clinton, IA, City Carrier Assistant Brandon Spencer with Hawkeye District Manager Jim Herrmann

While delivering a package along his route on a Sunday afternoon, Clinton, IA, City Carrier Assistant Brandon Spencer heard a startling sound. Two girls screamed desperately for help from a nearby home. When Spencer rushed to the scene, he found a man lying in a heap on the driveway.

The two girls looked to Spencer for help in saving their father, and the dedicated carrier immediately jumped into action. He contacted emergency personnel to alert them to the situation and then dropped to the ground and performed cardio pulmonary resuscitation on the man to keep him alive until medical responders could arrive.

Hawkeye District Manager Jim Herrmann showed his appreciation for Spencer’s actions by presenting him with a hero award.

“Brandon’s dedication to his customers is something we’re all proud of, and I’m glad to have him on our team,” said Herrmann.
