Wheel American Heroes [Hey, You!]

Illustration by Bob Aul

You were the men who were leaving Irvine’s FivePoint Amphitheatre after the Flogging Molly/Dropkick Murphys concert on Sept. 28. Walking across the elevated bridge toward the train station/rideshare lot, you noticed the man in the motorized wheelchair who was stranded by the inoperable elevator. Strangers, you called out to one another, then quickly worked together to safely carry the man and his chair down three flights of stairs. After reaching the bottom, you all graciously accepted applause, praise and thanks, then went your separate ways. It was, perhaps, the best performance of the night.
