Air Canada repairs wheelchair ‘after Twitter pressure’

7 August 2010

Pressure from Twitter users has made Air Canada fix a terminally ill boy’s wheelchair after it was damaged during a flight, his family has said.

Appeals for help from the aunt of 10-year-old Tanner Bawn went viral on the micro-blogging website.

Air Canada spokesman said the airline had acted as soon as they had heard about the problem. The airline contacted an overnight repair centre after hearing about the boy’s problems from other Twitter users and had the specialised chair returned to Tanner a day later.
