ROY, Utah — A mailman in Roy is being considered for a Postmasters General Heroes’ Award after he helped a lady who had fallen and couldn’t get up.

Adam Benicosa was on his mailing route on May 31 when he saw 68-year-old Sherry Jarvis on the ground.

“Out of the corner of my eye I saw some frantic waving and I looked over and it was one of my customers,” Benicosa said.

Jarvis had fallen over and hit her head on the railroad ties lining her planter box.

“I was weeding and I went to pull out this big weed. Well… the weed won,” Jarvis said.

Jarvis was able to check herself for injuries, finding she got pretty beat up in the fall, but didn’t have any broken bones.

Jarvis said she tried calling out to some neighbors she could hear, but they didn’t hear her. That’s when she spotted her mailman, Benicosa, who jumped into action.
