I hadn't considered it before seeing it, but power lift chairs often have a bank of D Cells.  Enough to provide another emergency lift to stand up. Should one need to get up and GTFO even if the AC went out.

Who the fark calls in a bomb threat to an old folks home?

Did one of the residents get restless and want an adventure?

Did some resident want to prove to their kids who forced them in there it wasn't safe?

Did some grandpa pwn some n00b kid in CoD so the kid called in a bomb threat?

I'm serious.  Who would do that?

This is the type of thing one does when one robs a bank.

When I lived in Minneapolis, I ran across a man trapped in a stalled electronic wheelchair in the railroad tracks by Hiawatha.  Unfortunately, the char also powered the computer the man used to communicate.

Me being dense, it took a while before I figured out that he was staring at me and kicking the lever to disengage the clutch so the chair could be pushed off the tracks.

I found out later that some bystander had the presence of mind to call the police, who then called the rail dispatcher, so the situation was less dangerous than it seemed at the time. Fortunately, the police dispatcher also called a local medical supply store who sent someone by with a spare battery.

It was a memorable day for me, but just another barrier to access for him.
