Former Paralympian Sarah Morris-Probert said she traveled from Cabo San Lucas, Mexicohome to Kelowna, Canada. According to the publication, the passenger was offered to be tied to a wheelchair and brought on board with the help of two men.

According to the Paralympian, there was a special ramp on the runway, but the airline employees did not consider it necessary to use it. The passenger complained that she had to climb up dirty metal steps on her own in front of her fellow passengers.
“It was humiliating and disgusting,” Morris-Probert admitted.
