South Florida mailman helps save stroke victim

OAKLAND PARK, FL (WFLX) - South Florida postal worker Mark Gereffi was on his route when he found a woman on the ground in front of her home. The woman was having a stroke, so the mail carrier called 911 and stayed with her until paramedics arrived.

What he did has local officials praising him, but Gereffi doesn't think he's special. "I just did what anybody would do. I'm just glad I could help."

The woman is out of the hospital and doing much better.
