Airline Loses Athlete’s Leg

A woman from New Zealand traveling to compete in the world athletic championships for the disabled got a pretty miserable surprise when she landed in Amsterdam for the event:  British Airways had lost her prosthetic leg.  As you can imagine, this is a problem if you are a one-legged runner heading to a running competition.  For its part, BA was extremely helpful, telling the woman that her bag is "one of 20,000" sitting in Heathrow.  The leg’s manufacturer is trying to make her a new limb before the competition begins.
