Deputies aid woman after her motorized wheelchair lost power

LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — Two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies went the extra mile for a woman after her motorized wheelchair ran out of power.

The wheelchair wouldn’t fit in their patrol car and the woman did not want to leave it behind. So in a video posted on Facebook, one of the deputies pushed her back to her Lancaster, California, home.

His partner teased him about the “slow” pace of the trip, which was about a mile (kilometer). The woman is heard on the video chuckling about that.
