Delivering mail and compassion

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. (WPVI) -- A member of the postal service was applauded Friday not for delivering mail but delivering kindness.

Postal officials presented Brea Lewis with a certificate of appreciation at the Huntingdon Valley Post Office.

Two weeks ago Lewis noticed an elderly woman walking in a remote area who appeared to be disoriented and lost.

It turns out, the woman had walked two and a half hours from Warminster.

Lewis called police and waited with the woman until officers arrived.

Officials say Lewis likely saved the woman's life.
