Edward Bomba was helping direct traffic while his crew was fixing a road on Walnut Street in Seymour when his heart shut down.

Edward was on the ground convulsing.

That's when USPS postal worker, Robert Dillon, saw him and started chest compressions.

"People don't survive what he went through," said Edward's wife, Lisa Bomba.

"I was blue, I was gone," Edward recalled.

Edward, who is a grandfather, was on a ventilator for three days, but is on his road to recovery.

He called Robert to thank him and told him "if it wasn't for you I wouldn't be here."

"To call him and say, 'Thank you' was like such an understatement because thank you isn't even enough," Lisa said. "I don't even think he realizes what he did. I mean he literally saved his life."
