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.
