DALLAS – A group of lawmakers launched an inquiry into the U.S. Postal Service after a Dallas mail carrier died in extreme heat.
Democratic Dallas Congresswoman Jasmine Crockett said they are hoping for changes, and quickly, with more dangerously hot weather ahead this summer.
Just days after burying her husband, Carla Gates is still seeking answers.
“I was so honored, just honored Blake, the love that people have spread for me,” she said. “I don’t wish this on anyone, anyone, to get that phone call…to get that phone call that your husband, your husband did not survive.”
Last month, her husband, Dallas letter carrier Eugene Gates, collapsed during his route.
