UPS driver hailed a hero after finding customer with medical emergency

February 7, 2019

When UPS driver Todd Holland delivered a package at a man’s Ashe County home Tuesday, he noticed the package he left Friday was still outside.

Something, he thought, wasn’t right.

“I started beating on the door, hollering his name,” Holland told WXII. “I tried the door and it was unlocked, so I opened the door.”

The man was on the ground, where he lay for days, unable to get up.

Holland called 911 and stayed with the man until help arrived.

He wants this to be a lesson to fellow UPS drivers.

“If you realize and get a gut feeling that something is wrong, check it out,” he said.
