While Oberlin, KS, City Carrier Assistant Tyler Bruggeman was delivering along his route recently, he heard desperate cries for help coming from of a nearby residence.

Bruggeman knew that the elderly man who lived at the home depended on a walker for mobility, and feared he had fallen. With great concern, the newly hired CCA immediately leaped into action to investigate.

When he knocked on the man’s door, he heard the man call for his help from the other side. Bruggeman entered the home and discovered that his customer had fallen several hours earlier and was unable to get up on his own.

Bruggeman called for emergency medical assistance and the man’s family to let them know what had happened. He then stayed with the man to provide comfort until help arrived.

“This young man was very composed and handled the situation well given the circumstances,” said Postmaster Alexis Basgall.
