Abby Lee Miller of “Dance Moms” fame underwent two emergency spinal surgeries in 2018, after which she was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer.
Doctors thankfully removed a tumor wrapped around her spine. Abby Lee announced she was cancer-free as of May 2019, but she was left partially paralyzed.
The 53-year-old reality star has been relearning how to walk and using a wheelchair ever since.
Recently, Abby Lee was traveling through Pittsburgh International Airport when she claims the airline couldn’t figure out how to transport her from one wheelchair to another after she fell onto the floor — and it turned into a messy debacle that she claims left her humiliated and sad.
Abby Lee posted a photo to Instagram showing herself splayed on the floor after falling from her wheelchair. “Help! ‘I’ve fallen and I can’t get up’ isn’t that the truth? Let’s just say my transfer from the Isle [sic] Chair to my own chair didn’t go so well!” she wrote to her 3.7 million followers.
She says ended up helpless on the floor for 40 minutes — while countless travelers strolled right passed her without asking if she needed help.
Watch the clip to see how the incident unfolded. The airline has since released a statement and apology in response.
