We all have someone in our lives whom we consider a hero.
Cissy Cartwright is a mail carrier in Hope Hull, Alabama for more than 20 years.
Her Old Friend
Her usual route includes 66-year-old Tommy Hope’s house that is located in a secluded area.
She Got Worried
When the time came when Cissy noticed that Tommy hadn’t collected his previous mail yet and his front door was open while his truck was in the front yard with the hood up, Cissy went ahead to check.
Cissy went to the door and called for Tommy. When she heard him yell back to her for help, she went in and found him on the floor, dehydrated and injured.
He’s There All Along
When Cissy asked Tommy, she learned that he had been there for 10 days.
Calling For Help
Cissy immediately called 911 and waited with Tommy until an ambulance arrived.
Cissy said in an interview that Tommy calls her his hero and “if that’s what he wants to say, I’m good with it,” she said.
Right Place At The Right Time
She also said, “But I don’t feel like a hero. I was just at the right place at the right time.”
