Driver Saves Resident Stuck Inside Trash Container

Driver Rick W. was on his route in Greensboro, MD, when he noticed something unusual. He most likely did a double take when he saw a customer lying in the driveway partially stuck inside her trash container. The 85-year-old woman had been bringing her container to the curb when she fell, hitting her face on the container, and was unable to pull herself out and stand up. She had been there for about 10-15 minutes, before Rick drove by and stopped. He was able to help her up and get her back inside her home. He then notified dispatch who contacted EMS to send someone over as soon as possible.

Thanks to Rick and his act of compassion, the story ended on a happy note. Both the customer and the township were touched and grateful that Rick was there that day.

Thank you, Rick, for your commitment to your community and customers. We truly appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond!
