|Artist's Rendering of the Escalator Mishap|
The police officer said I probably saved his life (breaking his fall). The paramedics said he needed stitches. The coffee was gone (all over my leg). I thought he had a stroke but it was only the froth of his coffee on his lips (he was drinking coffee on an escalator not holding on). Later he said thank you for saving me, he acknowledged my role. Today I am sore all over on the side he fell on. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
Blogger? Yes. Old Man Fall Breaker? Yes to that too. The morale of this story is, if you are going to stand behind someone old on an escalator, don't. Stand next to them. The scary part, he still drives.
