Delray Beach Carrier Palmer Aids Elderly Customer on Route

Delray Beach Letter Carrier Tim Palmer quickly responded to a cry for help on his route. 

A high school student walking in the area got his attention and asked him to help an elderly woman lying on her patio.  Tim helped stabilize the woman and called 9-1-1.  He then shaded her from the sun while he and the student waited for the ambulance to come until help arrived.  The elderly woman is could have possibly spent hours by herself in agony without Tim’s assistance as she lives alone.  The customer is recovering from broken hip in a rehabilitation facility.
