Seen here about to go for the idiot gold, a woman in a grape colored shirt prepares to tackle a Boston subway escalator with her motorized scooter. SPOILER: she does a terrible job. Like, I don't know if it's even possible to do worse. Sure I've seen videos of people in actual wheelchairs do worse, but you have to applaud somebody who's really handicapped risking becoming even handicapped-er for the sake of escalator-riding glory.
On Friday, the 56-year-old woman from South Boston was attempting to ride her scooter up an escalator at the Broadway MBTA Station, but flipped over a couple times and fell down.
Surveillance cameras showed other passengers and MBTA workers rushing to her aid.
She managed to walk away from the incident.
Did you read that? She managed to walk away from the incident. Yeah? Well maybe if she'd also walked INTO the situation none of this would have happened. Food for thought. Just kidding it was a booger, but still.
Hit the jump for two videos, the first of which is just the good part, the second (longer one) features her triumphant walk-off at the end. HEALED BY A FALL DOWN AN ESCALATOR!
Thanks to my buddy Terry, who actually lives in Boston and rides the subway everyday and probably creeps all the other passengers out because he's a scary dude. The kind that will get up and move to a seat behind you for no reason.
