Justin Levene, a paraplegic athlete, has denounced the situation he experienced at London's Luton airport. The young man landed, but his wheelchair got lost. The airport staff offered her a conventional chair, but she needed someone to push her. Justin rejected it when considering that it lost its autonomy, informs Exclusivadigital.com.
Levene asked if they had a motorized chair at the airport, but they lacked it, so she decided to crawl.
The young man has reported on the BBC the lack of resources of this airport: "Being in one of the chairs that they offered me would have been humiliating for me".
But the worst was when Justin Levene arrived at the airport exit, when he had to resort to a metal trolley to carry the luggage.
Levene has called for all airports in the UK to have autonomous wheelchairs to deal with these situations.
