Frontier forces quadriplegic off plane

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A quadriplegic man from Fort Collins says he was humiliated after he was forced off a Frontier Airlines plane because a pilot said it wasn't safe for him to fly.

John Morris and his family were trying to board a flight in Dallas to come home. Morris said he has flown Frontier Airlines in the past, using an airline seat-belt extension to secure his chest and legs to the seat, but this time the pilot refused to take off.

Frontier spokesman Peter Kowalchuk told KMGH-TV the pilot was concerned for the safety of Morris and uncertain whether the seat-belt extension could be used to restrain his legs and torso.
