Mail carrier cred­ited with res­cu­ing in­jured el­derly widow

The News Herald (Willoughby, OH) - - Local News -

MASSILLON » An Ohio mail carrier cred­ited with res­cu­ing an in­jured el­derly widow ly­ing help­less in her home says he knew some­thing was amiss when the woman’s porch door wasn’t un­locked as usual for two straight days.

Don­nie Lance tells The In­de­pen­dent in Massillon that he knew the woman lives alone, so he found a win­dow to peek through and saw her on the floor, con­scious but suf­fer­ing from a bro­ken hip and de­hy­dra­tion. She had fallen in the yard and pulled her­self to the house but then could only man­age to wait for help, per­haps for more than a day.

Once paramedics ar­rived, Lance con­tin­ued with his de­liv­ery route.
