Good Samaritan helps mailman during heat of 100 and up.
Thursday, outside temperatures were among the hottest so far this year, as the heat index reached over 105 degrees.
A heat advisory was in place for the entire Hampton Roads area from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Eight year old Carmine McDaniel, a Newport News boy, wanted to help his mailman beat the heat. He left a cooler filled with Gatorade and water on his front porch.
McDaniel explained his thinking to local reporters. “I just thought because it was really hot outside and I didn’t want him to maybe pass out or anything, because they are really important so people can pay their bills and stuff like that and I didn’t want him to pass out pretty much,” he said.
“Water and Gatorade. Thank you. Oh my God, yeah,” the mailman says as he discovers the box, in a video sent in to a local station by McDaniel’s proud mother.
