I saw a man

...fall down in the street yesterday.

He was an elderly man, and he was using a walker. I couldn't figure out why he was walking in the middle of the street rather than on the sidewalk. The road sloped downhill, and he tottered along faster and faster, pulled along by the walker. Then he fell and his shoe came off, and the car behind him slammed on its brakes, narrowly missing him. And as his walker skittered down the hill, the bus I was on sped by, oblivious.

I hope someone stopped to help him.
