It was certainly an evening to remember for Monica and her disabled son. As the crowd dispersed, the pair prepared to make their way home. They intended to travel by train from Penn Station, but their plan wasn’t to run smoothly. Indeed, the evening took an unexpected turn for the worse.

Monica wasn’t prepared for what she later described on Facebook as “our worst nightmare.” The evening had gone so well initially, from travelling to the stadium through to finding their seats and watching the teams in action. But it was the ride home that was to stop the pair in their tracks.

As Chris and his doting mom left the event, they headed out onto the street. The pair needed to access the elevator that would transport them down to the railway platform below. But to their horror, they discovered the lift was broken. Panic ensued as Monica tried to work out how she would get Chris home.
