Firefighters Help Man Get Home By Pushing His Electric Wheelchair
April 20, 2019
A group of firefighters in Missouri helped an elderly man get home after his electric wheelchair gave out on the side of the road.
"What happens when a Fire Truck comes upon a citizen who's electric wheelchair has stopped working. You get out and help them home," the Raytown Fire Protection District posted on Facebook.
The man, who is a veteran, had decided to go fishing at a nearby pond when he got stuck in a ditch.
Some people tried to help but were unable to free him. So they called the Raytown fire department.
"Our guys responded out there and basically lifted a wheelchair with him in it up out of the rut he was stuck in," Deputy Chief Mike Hunley told The Kansas City Star. "He apparently had been trying to get himself out with the wheelchair and had expended the battery so it was pretty drained."
The firefighters decided the best way to get him home was to push him in the wheelchair.
"They pushed him about 7 blocks back to his house," Hunley said.
"We encourage our guys to find the best way to make a difference when they are out in the field."
