Maybe he didn’t stop in time or he wasn’t aware of the train coming, but the old man entangles the awning of his motorized wheelchair with the cross guard.

TAICHUNG, TAIWAN - In Taiwan, an elderly gentleman was waiting to cross the train tracks when the awning of his motorized wheelchair became entangled with the train track crossing guard arm.

A security guard raced across the train tracks, tripping and falling, to help the old man. A police officer also jumped in to help the other two men untangle the awning before the train crossed the road.

Thankfully, no one was injured and the old man decided that there was a better route to take instead of crossing the train tracks.
