Disabled Vet Stranded on Broken Scooter a Mile From Home Gets a Big Push From Police


Gilbert Larocque was doing errands over Memorial Day weekend when the motorized scooter the 67-year-old Vietnam veteran uses to get around went on the fritz.

“First we offered him a ride home,” Cooper told the Union-Tribune. “But his power chair was important to him. It was his independence and his mobility.”
