Ok, the wheelchair user community has experienced this at one time or another, and that is getting stuck.
THIS was a close call.
Kevin Londoff of the Smith County Fire Marshal's Office said the man had set a fire in a burn pile behind his home int he 12000 block of Mixon Road near Texas Highway 110 in Troup.
Londoff said the man attempted to get away from the fire, but his wheelchair was stuck and he could not get away.
"A woman at the location went to help him and she received a minor burn to her hand as she tried to get him away from the fire," he said. "
WOW! Now he was burned enough to warrant a hospital transport, but seems he's alive.
We ALL have been stuck and felt that frustrating feeling. Then we go on Facebook, twitter, or Instagram and talk about it. "MY WHEELCHAIR GOT STUCK TODAY, AND IT SUCKED" #wheelchairproblems.
But to be close to the possibility of death or serious injury because "my wheelchair got stuck" is a scary thought. Thank God for good samaritans and brave people willing to help a fellow human out. If this happened to me, I would have probably posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: "UH OH, I ALMOST DIED TODAY BECAUSE MY WHEELCHAIR DECIDED TO GET ME STUCK, NEAR THE PILE I THOUGHT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO BURN. LOL! I SHOULD BE MORE CAREFUL" #iwasntthinking #ohsh*tthatwasclose #yolo
