The forgotten woman
Tiffani Adams’s story was posted by a friend on Air Canada’s Facebook page, drawing incredulous reactions from readers and a request for details from the airline. According to the post, Adams was flying from Quebec to Toronto Pearson International Airport when she fell asleep, aided by the fact that she’d ended up with a whole row of seats to herself. She woke up in “pitch black,” with the plane having landed and apparently been towed away from the airport after passengers and crew had disembarked. “I think I’m having a bad dream [because] like seriously how is this happening,” she wrote. She briefly called a friend but was cut short when her phone’s battery died. “I’m trying to focus on my breathing and control my panic attack while I attempt to charge my phone by plugging into every USB port I could find,” she wrote, but that proved fruitless because the electricity on the plane was turned off.
