Terms and conditions set by ticketing department will not allow this disabled mother to be a spectator at Paralympic Games with her family.
Beth Davis-Hofbauer, the 32-year-old who depends on wheelchair for carrying out her daily activities, asserted that she wished to sit with her two children, a four-year-old autistic son and her 19-month-old baby and her husband. However, she was not allowed to, as there were no provisions.
However, at the ticketing counter, the personnel simply rejected her request and informed her that wheelchair users could go along with only one member.
Enraged by the discriminatory ticketing policies, Mrs. Davis-Hofbauer, filed a complaint against the rules and regulations online to the International Paralympic Committee. This online petition has been supported by more than 12,000 people.
This has been claimed to be one of the most happening links in UK, which has been shared by a majority of users.
Through the petition, Mrs. Davis-Hofbauer said, "I was inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Games. I decided I wanted to take family to the Paralympics to sample the once in a lifetime showcase of disabled sport in London".
She affirmed that it was hard for her to believe that an event like this, which emerges as an inspiration for people like her, is actually discriminating them only.
