ORLANDO -- The family of a Wichita, Kan., minister says he was left stranded for two days at Orlando International Airport after he apparently suffered a stroke.It seems incredible that someone can be left sitting around an airport in a wheelchair for two days and no one take notice. Then again sometimes people do nothing, assuming that others will. I've seen that kind of behavior and reasoning happen myself. If the skycap and Orlando airport workers goofed, it could be verifiable. There almost certainly has to be video available to prove exactly what happened.
Airport officials say they are trying to determine what happened to the Rev. Kenneth Davis, 72, between the time he arrived in Orlando last Monday aboard an AirTran flight and when he was discovered Wednesday on a curb outside the airport.
Davis, pastor of Immanuel Outreach Centre Church of God in Christ, was hospitalized in Orlando, recovering from a stroke, his family said.
Shortly after he arrived in Florida, he told airport officials he was not feeling well and asked for a wheelchair, said Judy Graham-Weaver, an AirTran spokeswoman. An airport skycap helped Davis retrieve his luggage and took him to a curb outside the airport, where Davis said he would wait for a ride to his hotel, she said.
After waiting about 15 minutes, Davis called his wife, Joyce, in Wichita. He told her he was not feeling well and was waiting for a ride to his hotel.
"That call was the last time I heard from him," she said.
Graham-Weaver said the skycap went inside to help a passenger, and "when he came back out, he (Davis) was gone."
Family members became alarmed when Davis did not show up for the Gospel Music Workshop of America on Tuesday but were told someone had seen him there, Joyce Davis said.
The family did not discover that he had not checked into the hotel until Tuesday afternoon and filed a missing-person report with Orlando police Wednesday morning. Davis was found by a skycap in the Orlando airport about 5 p.m. Wednesday, almost 48 hours after his flight landed, according to the police report.
