Rural carrier performs CPR on co-worker

Rural Carrier Ronda Layson was at the Coco River Post Office in Naples, FL, when she spotted a colleague in distress.

Layson found the employee unconscious and not breathing. As she began CPR, another employee held the hand of their ailing colleague until paramedics arrived.

“Ronda went above and beyond the call of duty for her fellow co-worker, and the doctors stated that her actions saved the employee’s life,” Naples Postmaster Bryiant Clevenger said.

The recovering employee, who had suffered a massive heart attack, received three stents and is planning to return to work.
