(CNN) - 72-year-old Jesus Malvarez is a mailman who knows his Coconut Grove route well, but he's also being called a hero. He helps people, he says and though he's not interested in taking credit.
Malvarez's good deed last Tuesday is stuff of letter carrying legend.
Olga Katona had the scare of her life.
"If Jesus was not here, I was in trouble really because I can't do nothing, the pain was so terrible. When I heard this (jiggles mail slot) he was, I started not screaming so hard but he hear me."
That's when he found the woman he delivered mail to for more than a decade on her couch, trembling in pain. She had already called Fire Rescue once for chest pains, but dispatchers coached the postal worker as he waited with Olga until medics arrived.
Then it was back to work.
"I was so glad somebody was here with me and it was him and I thank god because he sent me him here."
Just another day in the neighborhood for the mailman who goes the extra mile.
Olga spent two days in the hospital, but wasn't thought to be having a heart attack.
