The Wheelchair “Secureshoe”

One day we had a friend to stay from England and she had  had a spinal stroke which sadly had left her paralyzed from the waist down. 

We took her to Bethels Beach and she asked us to whizz her along in her wheelchair alongside the waves. She enjoyed it so much. It was a joy to see her enjoying herself again like the times when we were children. 

 Being Teenagers we had a wonderful time not realizing that something might happen which would give us a shock.

.  . . ..All of a sudden we realized that her left foot had slipped from the foot rest and was being wedged between the frame and the wheel.  Because she had no feeling it was not known until it was too late.

It was a horrible experience we will not go into the details. Thinking back now to this experience, the Secureshoe would have prevented this from happening. How we wish Secureshoe had been invented back then.
