“What happens when a firetruck comes upon a citizen whose electric wheelchair has stopped working,” the fire protection district captioned the video. “You get out and help them home.”
The fisherman, also reported to be a veteran, was on his way to a local pond when the wheelchair got stuck in soft ground next to the paved path he was on.
“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 said. “He apparently had been trying to get himself out with the wheelchair and had expended the battery so it was pretty drained.”
One of the firefighters said that they were happy to push the man for about a mile.
