Aug 9th 2010 12:33AM My son uses a custom designed wheel chair and is simply stranded without it. An unnamed airline had one of their gorilla baggage handlers rip the wires out of the battery instead of reading very simple preprinted disassemble instructions that were attached to the battery before our flight. The airline accepted no responsibility and made not attempt to repair the problem. I finally was able to make a temporary fix that got us by until the chair could be repaired correctly. Airlines will destroy an electric wheel chair! A word to the wise. First, remove and carry your controller with you. Secondly, print some simple instructions on battery removal and how to free wheel the chair.
