Never Board An Escalator While In Your Power Chair [Video]
Power chairs are everywhere and have become a life saver for people with difficulty getting around on their own. Retailers and grocery stores like Wal-Mart and Schnuck’s even provide them for customer convenience. They can come in very handy for shopping or just strolling along the riverfront, but there are places you should not go in a power chair as one Boston woman found the hard way. A woman at a train station in Boston the other day attempted to get on an escalator while in her power chair and now wishes she hadn’t. As you can see below, she begins to roll backward once on the escalator and winds up taking a major tumble. Two bystanders immediately came to her aid and she appeared to be fine.
Authorities decided to release the video to warn others from trying to ride an escalator on a power chair. I would be interested to know what made her think that was a good idea, see for yourself.
