Residential Driver Joe H. was on his usual route in the South Salem neighborhood when he heard a woman calling out for help from inside her garage. Joe peered into the open door of the garage and saw Ruby on the floor struggling in pain. She had fallen and was on the floor for two hours before Joe found her. He quickly called 911 and stayed with Ruby until emergency vehicles arrived. It turns out that she had broken her hip and without Joe’s help, the paramedics said she would likely have not survived.
Ruby calls Joe her “Garbage Man/Angel” and we couldn’t agree more!
