ZOMG!!! How scary!!!
Our nation's capital is a great place for Independence Day, but one unlucky man in a wheelchair almost had the WORST Fourth of July EVER!!!
An unidentified disabled man hoping to ride Washington D.C.'s Metro last Thursday accidentally drove his motorized wheelchair off of the train platform and CRASHED down onto the tracks below!!
Aside from the nasty tumble, this put him at risk for oncoming trains and deadly electrical rails!!
Ch-ch-check out the heart-stopping video (above)!!!
Mercifully, several good samaritans bolted into action and rescued the poor dude!!
One of them, Army Specialist Michael Menchaca, says his military training helped him react quicker!!
Phew!! We're soooo thankful this horrific holiday disaster was narrowly averted!!!
