POCONO SUMMIT, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) Seven U.S. Postal Workers were recognized Wednesday for saving their co-workers life.
The employees from the postmaster to drivers were recognized by “Central PA District Leadership” for helping Donna Bethel when she had a heart attack on the job.
It happened at the Pocono Summit post office last September.
Bethel, a retail associate, fell as she helped a customer and stopped breathing.
Her husband, who is also her co-worker, along with six other employees quickly called for help and assisted medical personnel.
Donna tells us she’s back to work full-time and thankful to her postal family who saved her life.
The employees also received the “United States Postal Service Postmaster General Hero Award”.
