Morris cannot walk, so the couple chastised him for using what they thought was motorized equipment. Morris posted the encounter’s footage online to raise awareness and inspire compassion.
He emphasized the fact that adaptive equipment is allowed on all park trails in Indiana and emphasized the importance of showing compassion and respect for people with impairments.
