While Salina, KS, 16-year veteran City Carrier Deborah Mendenhall delivered mail along her route recently, she spotted a man convulsing in his car. When she investigated the situation to see if he needed help, the man slumped over in his seat, unresponsive to Mendenhall’s presence.

Though she tried to open the car door to assist, it was locked, and the windows to the running vehicle were closed. That’s when Mendenhall dialed 911 and waited by the car until emergency responders arrived.

Mendenhall’s awareness of her surroundings and quick actions saved the man’s life.
