A 90-year-old Pasco County man who managed to drive home after breaking his hip and wrist in a fall at the grocery store discovered after pulling into the garage that he couldn't get out of his car because of his injuries, The Tampa Bay Times reports. 

He was trapped for three days until a neighbor saw him wave his hand and calling for help.
