Long lines lead to rise of wheelchair ‘miracles’

Wheelchairs and attendants are available at airports for the asking. However, some travelers, in a rush to get to the front of the security line, take advantage of this service even though they don’t need it.

A traveler requests a wheelchair, gets pushed to the front of the security line and screened — and then jumps up out of the chair and rushes off into the terminal.

“We call them ‘miracles.’ They just start running with their heavy carry-ons,” said wheelchair attendant Kenny Sanchez, who has been pushing for more than 14 years.
