The U.S. Postal Service is defending a mail carrier who stepped around a Denver man who collapsed and died near his front door.

Dale Porch was dropped off at home last week after working the night shift for the Regional Transportation District, but he never made it inside.

Family members say a mail carrier walked by the body to deliver the mail, but did nothing to help.

The carrier has been temporarily taken off the route. The family says the mail carrier told them he thought the body was a mannequin, a decoration left over from Halloween.
