Fairfax, Va. (AP) - A helping hand for a wheelchair-bound man who found himself stuck outside in the snow.

According to Fairfax County Police, they got a 911 call around 10:30 last night. The man didn't speak much English, but with the help of a translator, they learned he was out on Main Street, near
Woodson High School.

The man told them he'd been waiting out in the cold in his wheelchair for more than two hours for a ride home, but the person never came to get him.

A police officer found the man and gave him a lift. Despite the weather, he wasn't hurt.
