If you or someone you’re close to does not use a wheelchair, then chances are you don’t spend a whole lot of time considering how difficult some everyday tasks can be for those folks.

A TikTokker named Ama posted a video that highlighted the struggle that wheelchair-bound people deal with all the time.

In her video, Ama said she was stuck on a sidewalk and added, “I have not figured out how to get out of this position yet but I just want to show you one of the things that I deal with being a wheelchair user in the wild.”

She showed viewers that she couldn’t get out via either direction on the sidewalk and so she ended up being trapped.

Ama said, “On my way here, I had to bring my suitcase to a storage place. And I literally almost tipped over backward.”

She continued, “Someone ran up and just helped me bring my suitcase all the way there because of how scary it probably looked to them. Like she freaked out and ran across the street.”

Cheers to that Good Samaritan!
