Patricia Stewart, who has bone disease, fell at the entrance to her house. Images shared by her cousin show her lying on the floor and the postman speaks to her for a moment before walking away.
“I can’t help you, I’m exhausted. Really exhausted, ”the man told him, Stewart said. The action was captured by a camera at the neighbor’s door. “The postman had just delivered two small parcels to me and placed them on a step at the entrance. When I tried to grab them I felt dizzy and fell. The postman just left and he didn’t see me fall so I called for help and asked if he could help me get up, but he said he was exhausted and me left there in the snow.
Stewart was in the snow for about 20 minutes before a delivery lady came to the rescue, Mirror reports. She was checked by ambulance personnel, but is doing well under the circumstances. “Everything still hurts a bit. I have a headache where I fell.
The woman’s niece, Sheryl Harkins, 36, visits her aunt several times a day. “At first I was angry, then I was upset. I am in shock. It could have turned out very differently if the delivery girl hadn’t found her.
A Royal Mail official has now visited the woman and has apologized to her. He promised that the incident “will not be swept under the rug.” It is not known if this means the letter carrier will be fired. “We are in contact with the victim and have the case under investigation,” said a spokesperson.
