Deputy Pushes Elderly Woman's Wheelchair Home After It Ran Out Of Power
October 8, 2018
A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy is being praised for pushing an elderly woman's motorized wheelchair home after it had run out of power in the middle of the road.
Lancaster Sheriff's Deputies Chapman and Montanez received a call about a traffic hazard involving a wheelchair in the middle of the road. When they arrived, they found the wheelchair on the side of the road -- but with an elderly woman sitting in it!
Her motorized wheelchair had run out of power and she was stranded. Deputies Chapman and Montanez offered her a ride home, but she was very upset about leaving her only means of mobility behind. The wheelchair, being quite heavy and unable to fold because of the battery pack, did not fit in their patrol vehicle.
That's when Deputy Montanez stepped up. He decided he would push the wheelchair to her home, about one mile, in full uniform and boots.
Deputy Chapman drove the patrol car behind Deputy Montanez and teased him about his "slow" pace.
"You can pick it up, you're only going about one mile an hour," Deputy Chapman says in the video.
Both Montanez and the elderly woman laughed.
