Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - An Arizona man burns his feet while running after the mail man.

Extreme heat in Phoenix brought a man to his knees when he was halfway across the street.

78-year-old James Wankel says he just couldn't take it anymore. Luckily there were neighbors close by to help him.

His feet are now in bandages.

Sidewalks and pavements can easily reach 130 degrees on a hot, summer day.
