The man in the wheelchair was on his way out that early afternoon. The day had begun cool but was already beginning to warm. His destination appeared to be the roadway beyond.

An actual man in an actual wheelchair was faced by an advancing mob of fake zombies. The sidewalk was so overfilled with spectators and zombies that there was no escape.

Several wheel chairs lined up for early boarding on the airliner that was scheduled to leave soon. It was unclear why so many elderly were in wheelchairs, other than it did allow them early boarding.

A person was being wheeled around the park grounds that afternoon. Although many trees were winter still winter bare, the park spoke of the spring to come.
