Postman Saves Toddler Life While Delivering Mail

Mail Carriers seem to be going above and beyond the call of duty these day. A few months ago a postal worker caught a 1-year-old baby who fell out of a second-story window and now today one performs CPR and revives a toddler.

Robert Sweeney said he was finishing his route through a Natomas neighborhood Thursday when he heard the panicked cries of Kelly Jimenez’s mother, who came running out of their house.

“She said, ‘My baby, my baby,'” Sweeney said. “My first thing was, I grabbed the baby from her arms, and I just brought her over here and laid her in the grass.”

Even though neighbors had called 911, Robert performed CPR on the 19-month-old and revived her before paramedics arrived.

She is listed in good condition at UC Davis Medical Center.

“I’m hoping that she’s going to be OK. You know, her still being in the hospital concerns me but at least she’s in good hands,” he said.

Robert also said the emotion of the moment didn’t hit him until he got back in his truck to go home, and started crying.

“You don’t ever think you would be in a situation like that,” he said.
