Rural Carrier acts on concern for unseen customer

Rural Carrier Slobodanka Cadenovic was recently making deliveries in Williamstown, NJ, when she grew concerned that mail was piling up at the home of a customer who normally retrieved it daily.

Cadenovic knocked on the customer’s front door but got no answer, so she checked with a neighbor — who had seen no sign of the woman in several days — and called 911.

Emergency responders soon discovered the woman on her bedroom floor, in dire need of medical attention, and rushed her to a hospital.

“I love my job and my customers, and if I can help them, I just do it,” Cadenovic said.
