A trip to the mailbox for an Oddville man became a life-threatening endeavor last Wednesday afternoon.
Operating a tractor, Robert Delano was traveling on Apple Lane toward his mailbox, when swift creek currents swept his tractor off the low-lying bridge and into Beaver Creek.
With increased cell phone usage due to the snow/ice storm, Delano’s attempts to use his cell phone to call 911 failed. Delano dialed a friend in Mt. Olivet who was able to reach 911.
Harrison County firefighter Doug Brooks responded.
