When the Pope lost his cool!

February 17, 2016 16:27 IST

The usual calm Pope on Tuesday showed a rare sign of anger during his trip to Mexico after a crowd pulled his arm and caused him to topple onto a man in a wheelchair in front of him.

The incident occurred in the western city of Morella when the Pope was greeting the devout at an open air mass.

During the event, one eager person pulled at Francis's robe which caused him to fall down onto a wheelchair-bound man.

Though, the pontiff recovered and kissed the man, he made his irritation known.

The head of the Catholic Church shouted saying, 'No seas egoísta. Qué te pasó, no seas egoísta', which translates to 'Don't be selfish, don't be selfish.'

The Pope concludes his visit on Wednesday which focused mostly on the injustices faced by Mexico’s poorest, most oppressed and vulnerable to the country’s drug-fuelled violence.
