But, she's protected from 20-oz. soft drinks in styrofoam cups!
Schania Burgess, 8, is wheelchair-bound and has not been outside since Sandy hit.
Her mother said the elevators in their high-rise building on Surf Avenue and 24th Street have been out of order for months, leaving Schania a virtual prisoner in their third-floor apartment.
Burgess has not been able to go to school as a result and said she misses her friends and art class the most.
Instead, she is being home-schooled by an instructor.
Heckuva job, Bloomie!
You know, this story should scare you for this reason: New York City - New York City! - is considered one of the First World's top metropolises and its infrastructure is so incredibly neglected that for many people, they might as well be living in the Third World.
And no one cares. Especially not the photo-op president and mayor that came in, hugged people on camera, and left.
