Ohio mailman to get lifesaving hero’s award

WASHINGTON, D.C. — An Ohio letter carrier who has helped save the lives of three people will be honored at a luncheon Thursday in Washington, D.C., for his latest heroics.

Thirty-year post office veteran Keith McVey, of Barberton, will be honored by the National Association of Letter Carriers with its 2011 “National Hero of the Year” award.

Last year while delivering mail he performed CPR on an unconscious man on the side of the road in Akron.

He had told The Associated Press that, after three life-saving opportunities, he thinks “a little divine intervention” may be at work.
