A 51-year-old mailman named George Clifford was driving in his mail truck near Pittsford, Vermont earlier this month. And he found a 72-year-old guy lying on the side of the road with no pulse.
So he called 911, and they helped him do CPR. He says he used to scuba dive a lot, and taught some water rescue courses at one point. But he never actually had to do CPR on anyone, so he was pretty nervous.
But after some chest compressions, the guy took one huge gasp of air . . . started breathing again . . . and George ended up saving his LIFE.
Paramedics rushed the man to a hospital, and his doctors say he should make a full recovery.
And to top things off, George kept delivering the mail and actually finished his route. He says it took a little longer than usual, because all he could think about was whether the guy was okay.
Then the guy’s son got in touch with him three days later to let him know he was okay. And George planned to meet the family in person earlier this week.
