Rural Carrier takes charge of customer’s crisis

HeroTimothyBeckham large storyRural Carrier Timothy Beckham was delivering mail last year in tiny Quitman, LA, when he spotted a customer who’d fallen on her porch.

Beckham rushed to aid the woman, who had been stranded for two hours.

He safely helped her up, then called police to request further assistance.

“The customer said if it weren’t for Tim seeing her in distress, there is no telling how long she would have been there,” said Travis Whitehead, the local postmaster.

“She appreciates her mail carrier.”
