I may be considered an asshole, but if you can walk (which she clearly could), why on earth would you attempt to ride an escalator with a heavy ass motorized scooter? Clearly the scooter is much larger than one of the escalator stairs. Also, if you need assistance to get around, chances are you won’t be able to balance your own weight and the weight of your transportation (240 lbs.) on a step that is much too small.
The woman has not been identified, but we somehow know she is 56-years-old and this took place at the Broadway T stop in Boston, MA. It has also been revealed that there was an elevator some 50 feet away from this escalator, that the woman could have taken instead. Laziness and stupidity is what led to this incident, and I hope the woman realizes that.
