Today, as I was going up the stairs to my local subway stop at work, a very elderly, very infirm and very disabled woman was attempting to walk down the two flights of stairs with her two canes. One man (clearly a good Samaritan) was helping her and another joined in when it became clear she needed more assistance than one person could give. With each step down she gave out a yelp of? pain? fright?
I made my way up to the subway platform and was able to see her, inching her way down a major avenue in Queens with her canes, one step at a time. No one was with her.
Would you have called for assistance? Stopped to ask her where she was going and why she was without someone to escort her?
