    What does this sentence mean? He brushed past, toppling her from her stool.

    'He brushed past, toppling her from her tool'

    I don't understand this sentence.


    Can anybody help me out please?


    Cheers. ^0^

    As he passed her, he bumped into her and knocked her off the stool she was sitting on.

    But the choice of words is strange. Brushing past (very slight contact, maybe only clothes). She must have been wobbling already for his brushing past to have toppled her!
