“A male accidentally cut himself w/a chainsaw. Luckily, Mail Carrier Mr. Garcia heard the family's screams & sprung into action using his belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding on the man's arm. The man has a good prognosis due to Mr. Garcia's actions,” twitted the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department from the Norwalk Station.
