He got a bit more mobility than he bargained for.

KidKorporate: He got a bit more mobility than he bargained for.


"How fast does that scooter go?"
Well, about 4 mph horizontally and vertically about 9.8 m/s/s.

That was one of the most insane WTF moments in TV history.    Especially when it was well before DVR's and the internet.

Investigators are trying to figure out how a 45-year-old man in a mobility scooter fell three floors down an elevator shaft in downtown Toronto on Thursday.

Straight down at 9.8 meters per second per second, I'd guess.

Came here to post this idiot.

This gif doesn't even do him justice; he charged and rammed the elevator door several times before finally succeeding in Darwining himself.

Came here to post this, and when I saw it posted wanted to make the same comment.
The guy missed the elevator just as the doors l closed, so he kept ramming them.
He succeeded in making the doors open.

Daryl pushed him.

Doctors fear he'll have a hard time walking after the accident.

Screaming on the way down was the most cardio hes done in a long time. I dont understand how he didnt see there was no elevator and just kept going.   Makes no sense to me.

I'm just curious how someone doesn't notice the lack of an elevator cab?  How does that even happen?  No floor, no lights, no paneled walls, and you just waltz (or roll, in this guy's case) on in...

The same way people walk into a busy intersection while still looking at their phones.

Is the mobility scooter OK?

Broken legs hurt like crazy. At least the full compound ones do. Damn.

Indeed. It would have been truly great had they gotten rid of her on TNG in the same manner.

"Well, doctor, that's kind of strange because before..."

Yeah I had to chop the gif down to the most relevant bits, apparently Fark has a not just a size limit but a frame count restriction on animated gifs.

Unless he was blind how the hell did he NOT SEE that the car wasn't there when the door opened? I'll also bet he was a LARGE MAN since he only has a broken leg.
