You can lose your keys, you can lose your money, and you can even lose your mind. BUT whatever you do, DON'T LOSE GRANDMA!
Airlines misplace luggage all the time, but Southwest Airlines is coming under fire for losing a passenger.
After visiting her daughter, Alice Vaticano, 85, was flying home to Denver from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.
A skycap working on behalf of Southwest Airlines promised to take Vaticano in her wheelchair directly to her gate, but actually abandoned her along the way. Vaticano missed her flight and was stuck in Newark for 11 hours.
"She pushed me there and left me." “I was just sitting all day in a wheelchair.”
Vaticano, who has diabetes was confined to her wheelchair without food or a chance to use the restrooms, before she was finally noticed by airline employees, according to her daughter, Donna Vaticano.
“Where was she? What happened to her? These are people’s jobs,” Donna Vaticano said.
Southwest Airlines blamed Vaticano's loopy layover to a processing error in the check-in process.
"It did not alert our employees at the gate to her special need (wheelchair) in boarding the aircraft,” a spokesperson told the local media.
After Southwest realized the mistake, Vaticano was placed on a connecting flight through Chicago to Denver.
Just an FYI......just because you decide to do something stupid that doesn't mean that you should make a child do it.
A grandfather in Houston, Texas (BIG DOSE OF CRAZY), may be in trouble with the law after allegedly making his 10-month-old granddaughter take the ice bucket challenge........
Earlier this week, Reggie Stewart posted a video of himself taking the ice bucket challenge. While he is challenging others, the granddaughter sits in a walker trying to grab the bucket full of ice.
"I've been called out for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge… and my granddaughter … is going to do it with me," he said a few seconds before dumping the freezing water on himself and the child.
The video ends before the girl's reaction can be seen, but the sight of a little girl being drenched with at least a gallon of chilly water left a burning impression on Claude Dalcour, who claims to be the girl's father.
"I was shocked, appalled. It brought me to tears, like I was hurt, angry. That's all I can say". "It's abuse because my daughter is an infant. She doesn't know what's going on."
Dalcour said he is still married to the girl's mother, but the two are separated.

Dalcour said he reported the video to local law enforcement officers, who have reportedly visited Stewarts home to check on the child’s welfare.
The Texas Department of Children and Families was also contacted, but the agency would not confirm whether it isinvestigating the allegations.
Stewart has not been charged with any crime, the station reports.
