ANTIGO, Wis. (AP) - A UPS driver in Antigo is being credited with delivering an 86-year-old man from a potentially dangerous situation.

Wausau Daily Herald Media reports (https://wdhne.ws/1WJikuA ) that 86-year-old Donald Heinzen had gotten tangled in some vines and fallen in his garden last Friday. Heinzen’s wife was away at a doctor’s appointment, and after about half an hour lying on his face in the garden, Heinzen was beginning to suffer heat stroke.

Then he heard a honk as United Parcel Service driver John Johnson pulled up to his home. Johnson heard a faint call for help, looked and saw Johnson. He raced over and helped Heinzen to his feet, and when he was too weak to walk, carried him to the house and helped him to water.

Heinzen says Johnson saved his life.
