American Airlines has found the luggage belonging to Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis, after she took to Twitter Thursday calling out the company for losing luggage containing some important equipment.
Haslet-Davis, a professional dancer, lost her leg in the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013. She tweeted Thursday evening that the airline lost a bag containing her prosthetic leg and dance parts, valued at over $250,000.
Haslet-Davis asked American Airlines to please respond, which it did, first tweeting, "We're doing all possible to get you and your bag back together again."
The company followed up overnight with a statement: "We're sorry this happened. Her bag has been located and we will reunite her with it as soon as possible."
Haslet-Davis’ original tweet had been shared by over 100 people, many of whom slammed American Airlines while also calling on news media to publicize Haslet-Davis’ story.
