"I guess I would have just sat at home and cried all day watching the news," said Barb Langdon.
Barb's normal route passes in this area near the Tops Plaza in Gates. But she took someone else's route on Thursday and skipped her usual morning break.
She was in the right place at the right time.
"Thank God I was there," said Langdon.
Since 1981, Barb has delivered the mail in the rain, snow, and heat. But nothing like this day.
"I saw black smoke. It was coming out the chimney and then within seconds out the side of the house," said Langdon.
Barb dialed 911 and frantically honked her horn. 67-year old Judy Ogg was hanging out the window.
Barb said she called out for the four-year old that Ogg said was inside, but the child did not come to the window.
"I decided I needed to get her out because she was of no use trying to get the baby," said Langdon.
Barb said she ripped down the curtains and pulled Ogg out of the window and then wrapped her up in her coat.
But Barb couldn't stop thinking about the children inside.
"I just wanted the babies to get out," cried Langdon, "I am a grandmother too."
First responders came moments later rescuing the children and a mother.
Barb's boss praised her actions.
"Carriers are really the eyes and ears of our community and it's not uncommon for the carriers to be involved in a situation like this. But we couldn't be more proud of her behavior today, her actions and for her to say she is not a hero is not true, she absolutely is," said Terriann Burke, a manager.
As Barb finished her shift, her thoughts stayed with the family.
