ESCONDIDO, Calif (KGTV) -- A Palomar Water delivery man is being credited for saving the life of an elderly woman who fell and couldn't get up to call for help.

On Monday, Marco Perea showed up to deliver water for his 88-year-old customer in Escondido. When he knocked on her door, he could hear her, but she wouldn't come to the door.

After several attempts to get her to open the door, she was able to tell him that she'd fall on Sunday afternoon and hadn't been able to get up since then.

Perea called 911 and paramedics and firefighters were able to make entry into the apartment. The woman was rushed to the hospital.

Perea says the woman does have a caregiver, but only from Monday through Fridays. The woman's condition is still unknown.
