According to NBC Chicago, Shonda Lemon, an eight-year veteran with USPS, was delivering mail when she realized one of the residents on her route, 89-year-old Helen Iwanski, had not picked up her mail in three days.
Lemon told the TV station she was concerned and knocked on Iwanski’s door. When no one answered, she called 911. NBC Chicago reports the woman was found lying on the floor, and had gone without food and water. She was taken to a rehab center.
Lemon told NBC Chicago she was just looking after “one of God’s children.”
