BROWNSVILLE – A Brownsville man says his custom-made wheelchair was damaged at the baggage claim area of a major airline.

In August, Mike Begum, a professional gamer, went to Las Vegas for a competition.

Begum says his brother had to now push his wheelchair for him. He explained he can’t move on his own because the headset doesn’t work.

"Now, I'm trying to get it fixed through them. It’s been almost two months already,” says Begum.

KRGV’s Angelo Vargas reached out to United Airlines and is waiting for a response back.
