Namur: a person in a wheelchair falls into the Meuse

Big excitement on the cobblestones of a quay in the Meuse, below the new Confluence, late Saturday afternoon, while the Namur fairground festival in May was in full swing. According to information provided by the firefighters of Namur, a disabled person moving in a wheelchair along the river could not control the speed of his locomotion machine. We can imagine the fright of this person who saw himself fall into the water. Fortunately, although disabled, she was able to be rescued and returned to the dock. The divers’ intervention was limited to recovering the wheelchair, which had sunk.
