DeKalb woman credits her mailman with saving her life after fall

A DeKalb County woman said she wouldn’t be alive if not for the quick actions of her mail carrier.

Mabel Walls, 79, fell down the front steps of her Arborcrest Drive home in March and sliced one of her arteries on a decorative metal ornament in her yard, Channel 2 Action News reported.

She was bleeding profusely on her front sidewalk and believes she would have died there if her mailman, Mark Palmer, hadn’t arrived with her mail in the nick of time.

The two recently reunited at the woman’s home, where Walls squeezed “her angel” and thanked Palmer for stepping in to save her.
