Nothing makes you feel better about the society we live in like hearing about an ordinary citizen taking matters into their owns hands in an extraordinary act of compassion or concern.
Sometimes, that act of goodwill turns out to be something quite unexpected.
A UPS driver in Oregon was just doing his job delivering packages when he found himself in one of those exact situations.
Lee Purdy pulled up to a house and hopped out to deliver a package but paused once he heard screams of “Help! Help!” and wasn’t sure what to do.
Lee called his wife for some guidance who quickly said she would call 911, while Lee stood by to assess the situation.
