American Airlines Loses Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor’s Prosthetic Leg

Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis took to Twitter Thursday, calling out American Airlines 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.

//’ tweet has been shared by over 100 people, many of whom are slamming American Airlines while also calling on news media to publicize Haslet-Davis’ story. American Airlines was quick to respond on Twitter, saying, “We’re doing all possible to get you and your bag back together again.”

The company did not immediately respond this morning to an ABC News request for comment.

Most recently, Haslet-Davis shared a positive note with those who have followed her story and have tried to help.
