*Though the “official” reason given for not allowing Heidi Wright to board the flight that she and her sister, Sherry Wright had prepared for was an expired drivers license, Sherry says the true reason for the indignation was when a Transportation Security Administration official at LAX told her to make her sister talk…she couldn’t.
Sherry had been unable to talk since her stroke 10 years ago. She and her sister were on the way to Phoenix to meet with her caretaker.
According to ABC7, Heidi, 58, suffered a stroke. She is wheelchair-bound and unable to speak.
“He just wanted me to make my sister talk, and I couldn’t believe it. I was like, ‘Wow, we’re going to make a miracle right now,'” said Wright.
Sherry took Heidi to the airport Wednesday for a flight to Phoenix, but they were stopped by the TSA because of the expired license.
“I showed her ID, her social and her DMV papers,” said Sherry.
Sherry said the agent was extremely rude.
“I was shocked. I was just standing there, tears were coming out and I was like, ‘Are you serious? We can’t get her to talk.'”
