Connecticut postman is celebrated after helping save a man’s life during work last month.

WTNH-TV In New Haven, USPS employee Robert Dillon reports that he saw a member of a construction worker collapse and took action.

Edward Bomba was guiding traffic for the crew when he had a heart attack. As he cramped and lay on the ground, Dillon rushed up, began chest compressions, and continued until help arrived.

“I was blue, I’m gone,” Bomba told WTNH.

Bomba reportedly used a ventilator for three days and eventually passed through. He later called on Dillon to thank him for saving his life.

WTNH reports that Dillon once experienced his own medical emergency and no one came to help for 20 minutes. Since then, he has vowed to help those in need.

In a statement, the USPS praised Dillon’s hero.

“Heroic, as Dillon showed, happens frequently within our peers, but it’s another example of a good person, doing the right thing in the right place, at the right time.” The agency statement was partially read. “We are fortunate to have a large supply of talented people at the post office.”
