Linda Wu delivers the mail faithfully on her United States Postal Service route in Cherokee County, but recently she delivered something more to David Burke.

Burke, 86, who suffered a serious back injury several years ago, stepped out of his front door in Woodstock last week and fell backwards onto the floor of his home’s porch.

“If I fall, I’m not getting up,” Burke says.

With his wife, Liz, visiting friends out of town, Burke was alone, and he knew he was in trouble.

“If I had lain there with no one to help, I don’t what might have happened to me,” he said.

Fortunately for Burke, his residence on a quiet cul-de-sac is on Linda Wu’s mail route. When she drove up a few minutes later, she knew what to do.
