article imagePolice officer escorts woman lost on her mobility scooter

By Owen Weldon     Jun 17, 2015 in Odd News
A grandmother was lost on a busy road in Lyden, Washington, while she was riding her mobility scooter, but she made it home safely thanks to an officer
Dave Hintz, a state trooper, noticed that the woman was in danger, so he decided to pull her over. Hintz said he wasn't trying to detain her, nor was he trying to stop her. He said he simply wanted to get the woman back to her home.
Hintz told the woman that people were worried about her because she was on and off the road. That's when he found out the woman traveled about four miles from her home and she was lost. Hintz added that he treated her the way he would want someone to treat his own mother. He also said he was upholding his oath as a state trooper.
Hintz drove carefully behind her at about 6 mph, and it took the woman more than an hour to get to her home.
The officer also stopped to pull the woman from the long grass on the side of the road, and at one point in the video, the woman tells him to not topple her over, and he replied that he wasn't going to.
Some people noticed what the officer was doing and snapped the footage with their phones and cameras, and they started to make their rounds on social media.
