WOODLAND HILLS, CA – A 63-year-old US Postal Service worker was found dead in her truck on day temperatures reached 117 degrees.

Peggy Frank was a 28-year veteran with the U.S. Postal Service with only two years left until retirement.

Friday was her first day back on the job after taking two months off to recover from a broken ankle. At around 3 p.m., Frank was found unresponsive inside her USPS truck.

Despite attempts to revive her, Frank would be pronounced dead at the hospital. Although an actual cause of death has not been determined, heat exhaustion is a definite possibility.

Temperatures that day reached 117 degrees and USPS mail delivery trucks are not equipped with air conditioners.

Frank had also suffered from heat exhaustion in May of last year.

A US Postal Service spokeswoman said ‘safety is our top priority for all our employees’ and that mail carriers are always reminded to keep hydrated, wear weather-appropriate attire, bring along plenty of water and ice, and stay in the shade.

But Frank’s family says they need to do more to look out for their workers.

Honestly, I had no idea those mail trucks didn’t have air conditioning. That would be like driving an oven on wheels, yeah? Anyone here ever do delivery work in extreme heat? I imagine it’s brutal.
