CHICAGO >> American Airlines investigates how a 67-year-old woman in a wheelchair was sleeping overnight at Chicago’s Hare International Airport when the flight was interrupted.

The event, first reported by CBS 2 in Chicago, started Friday night when Olimpia Warsaw’s flight from Chicago to Detroit was interrupted and a concierge was assigned to take care of her.

Her son Claude Coltea said that Warsaw was offered a hotel room but when nobody would take her, the porter said his shift was over and left.

The family grew alert and called security, and the woman suffering from Parkinson’s disease and having trouble communicating was located.

In a statement, US spokesman Ross Feinstein said the airline met with the family, refunded Warsaw’s ticket and took steps to “ensure that this does not happen again”.
