Despite warnings from federal health officials not to board another long flight, he flew home for treatment, fearing he wouldn't survive if he didn't reach the U.S., he said.Right, and so screw everyone else on that plane, right? And their families? And their health? Andrew Speaker was so worried about surviving he was willing to jeopardize others?
The family said that a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official told them the only way for him to get back to America from Italy would be to hire a private plane.
But the parents said they are not rich and could not have easily afforded a private jet.
"We work hard," said Betsy Cooksey, a school teacher and mother of Andrew Speaker's new bride, Sarah. "We're not in careers that are high paying."
Someone should muffle these people before they attempt to excuse this incident again.
