USPS employee Robert Dillon jumped into action when he saw a member of a construction crew collapse.

A Connecticut mail carrier is being celebrated after he helped save a man’s life while on the job last month. WTNH-TV in New Haven reports that USPS employee Robert Dillon jumped into action when he saw a member of a construction crew collapse. Edward Bomba was directing traffic for the crew when he suffered a heart attack.

As he lay on the ground convulsing, Dillon rushed over, began chest compressions and continued until help arrived. “I was blue, I was gone,” Bomba told WTNH. Bomba was reportedly on a ventilator for three days and ultimately pulled through.

Since then, he’s vowed to help others in need. In a statement the USPS praised Dillon for his heroics. “While heroics, like those exhibited by Mr. Dillon, occur frequently within our ranks, it’s just another example of a good person, being in the right place at the right time and doing the right thing,” the agency’s statement read, in part.
