— -- Pope Francis is known for making himself accessible to the people and connecting with his followers through his humble lifestyle.

But while walking among a crowd in Mexico Tuesday, he scolded some fans who were trying to get too close.

During an appearance in the city of Morelia as part of his visit to Mexico, Pope Francis, who was born in Argentina, appeared visibly angry when he was pulled by a crowd and fell over, landing on a person with disabilities who was seated in front of him.

The pope was heard telling off the offenders, saying in Spanish, "Don't be selfish! Don't be selfish!"

No lasting damage was done, however, and he has a busy day scheduled today with a visit to a prison and a Mass straddling the U.S. and Mexican borders scheduled for early this evening.
