Deputy Pushes Elderly Lady Home after Her Electric Wheelchair Lost Power

posted by Nina - 

A woman was stranded on the road after her electric wheelchair lost power. 

Help arrived and they offered her a ride home, but she was very sad about the idea of leaving behind her only means of mobility and the wheelchair wouldn't fit in the car. 

So deputy, Steven Montanez pushed her a mile back home in full uniform and boots 😱

His partner followed back in the patrol car. 


Montanez pushing wheelchair

Deputies Chapman and Montanez received a call of a traffic hazard, a wheelchair in the middle of the road. When they arrived, they did find the wheelchair on the side of the road, but with an elderly female sitting in it! Her motorized wheelchair had run out of power and she was stranded. Deputies Chapman and Montanez quickly offered her a ride home, but she was very upset about leaving her only means of mobility behind. The wheelchair, being quite heavy and unable to fold because of the battery pack, did not fit in their patrol vehicle. That's when Deputy Montanez stepped up. He decided he would push the wheelchair to her home, about one mile, in full uniform and boots. Deputy Chapman teased him about his "slow" pace and you can hear our eldelry friend getting a good laugh out of it! We are so incredibly grateful to all of our deputies for the work they do on a daily basis. My hero wears a badge. #LASD #AV411 #soundon #workoutoftheday #myherowearsabadge Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
