Rushing to a stranger’s aid

Viroqua, WI, City Carrier Tammie Halverson.

Viroqua, WI, City Carrier Tammie Halverson was delivering on her route recently when she witnessed a resident fall to the walkway from a second-story apartment.

Halverson rushed back to her vehicle to get her phone and called 911. She then returned to the scene and saw the man moving his hands. She remained with him until help arrived.

Surprisingly, Halverson noticed several people walk past the injured man – without taking action. The passersby acted shocked when they spotted the scene, but continued on their way.

The man suffered multiple fractures in his hips, legs and arms; and is recovering. He thanked Halverson for helping him during his accident and for calling emergency responders.
