Airline Apologizes For Losing Bombing Victim's Bag With Prosthetic Leg


Professional dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis was not happy when she took to Twitter to complain that American Airlines had lost her prosthetic leg.

Haslet-Davis lost her lower leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. She continues on as a ballroom dancer with the help of a $250,000 fake limb, which failed to arrive with Haslet-Davis.

She later posted a tweet saying "American had its best people on it and found it! A little jealous it got to travel somewhere pretty," she wrote. "I'm happy with how (they) worked to find my bag in the end. Let's not cyber bully them, there are bigger issues in this world."

It was not clear where her baggage was found.
