A retiree died after his electric wheelchair caught fire and he couldn't escape.
Harold Jump, 63, was burnt over 75% of his body. His wheelchair caught on fire and he could not get out of it.
Neighbors heard him screaming in his apartment and they called 911.
Firefighters responded to the call and found the man completely engulfed in flames.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
How awful. To bad no one could help him.
