Gary Stapleton, 62, and his wife Sue were left helpless in early April when a trip to see the ducks at Moonee Ponds, Melbourne, was almost ruined by Mr Stapleton's dangerous fall.

Nine News reports the couple, who are both wheelchair bound because of a degenerative disease, were distracted by the death of their grandson earlier that week.
