A Tampa veteran says his wheelchair lift fell off his vehicle twice, so he 'turned to 10' for help

Gary Rubinson traveled the world while serving in the US Army. These days, he relies on a wheelchair to get around, but he doesn’t let that slow him down. “We used to go to the Threshers games," Gary explained. "My son’s autistic, and baseball is the only thing that makes him light up.” Last April, after upgrading to a new vehicle, the VA sent Gary to a local company, Mobility Express, to install the lift for his wheelchair. Everything seemed fine until two weeks later.
