ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — A Denver postal worker was credited with saving a 2-year-old girl he found wandering in the middle of a busy street by herself Wednesday.

The girl, who is OK, was found in the middle of morning traffic on Zuni Street near Cottonwood Drive in Adams County. It’s a highly traveled two-lane road with a speed limit of 30 mph.

Robert Batley has been a letter carrier for 16 years and has stepped up in times of trouble before.

  1. I found 4 over the years here in NJ, all boys and younger than this. None of the parents knew they got out. People you need to make sure the doors are locked. So I went to the door holding one kid and when she opened the door she looked at me and said “Yes can I help you?” She didn’t even recognize her own baby in my arms until I said does this belong to you? She looked at me with a Huh? look and then looked down into the living room floor and then back at me again and then realized that was him and he wasn’t there anymore, funny as hell.
    Two of the others thanked me and asked not to tell their husbands, and one just grabbed the child and slammed the door in my face, it was like OK cool, take it easy.
    I sometimes look back on the 41 years I did that job and think maybe that’s the only reason I played in this Karmic dance was to save one of these innocent kids so they or a far distant relative will become a great leader or scientist or find a cure for cancer, I’ll never know how this will play out and it makes all those years seem worthwhile…………….M
