In 2012 Wilkinson went grocery shopping at Walmart, using a motorized scooter to travel down the various aisles. When she got to the soda section, she looked to pick up a box and put it in her basket, but the situation then took an unfortunate turn. Indeed, as she leaned over to the shelf, she fell out of her cart.
