When a public works employee in Connecticut fell to the ground, a USPS mail carrier in Connecticut jumped into action.
Edward Bomba’s heart stopped beating when he was directing traffic while his team was repairing a road on Walnut Street in Seymour.
Edward was convulsing on the field.
When Robert Dillon, a USPS postal worker, saw him, he began chest compressions.
Edward’s wife, Lisa Bomba, said, “People don’t survive what he went through.”
Edward remembered, “I was blue, I was gone.”
Edward, a grandfather, was put on a ventilator for three days but is now on the mend.
He called Robert to thank him and told him “if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here.”
“To call him and say, ‘Thank you’ was like such an understatement because thank you isn’t even enough,” Lisa said. “I don’t even think he realizes what he did. I mean he literally saved his life.”
