Anita Pallara is suffering from Sma (spinal muscular atrophy). The pram is a part of her, “my legs, my arms. It’s my body.” But now, after a flight from Bari to Cagliari, it is destroyed and unusable. The complaint in a post on Facebook, in which the 32-year-old from Bari also shows some photos of what she calls her “worst nightmare”. “Tuesday 6 July 2021 – he writes – I leave Bari with a flight to Cagliari. I prepare all the documentation required to travel with a SIMPLE ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR, I pay a normal ticket like everyone else despite mine (like that of all disabled people) is not normal treatment. We are loaded when and how the airport and the carrier decide, each with different rules, we have to explain 100 times that wheelchairs are not time bombs but simple electric wheelchairs, we are hardly called passengers but we are acronyms. exactly I’m CHARLIE “. “My father (or my mother) take care of organizing the wheelchair ready to be boarded, we unplug the contacts, we pack the joystick, we show how to unlock and lock the brakes to move it by hand. The company does not have a dedicated space in the hold. the prams are loaded as luggage, as goods, no attention to a SACRED thing. “, reads the post. Anita, president of Sma Families, then explains that she is now blocked with no possibility to move. “Result: I arrive in Cagliari and I find myself with a completely unusable wheelchair, I’m far from home, I can’t move and my new wheelchair (April 2021) is destroyed due to a trivial plane flight. The wheelchairs are not objects. yesterday suddenly my legs and arms were cut off, without warning me, without anesthesia. It is an unimaginable pain and a VIOLATION of one’s rights and one’s body. Now I don’t know how the matter will evolve, I know for sure that this thing must end “.
