Kekona landed in Portland after seeing family in Maui. Upon her birth, she suffered chest, head and leg injuries leading to a disease that finally resulted in her death. The first incident was caught on video.

While the household allegedly affirmed five occasions who Kekona, who took a wheelchair, could be given gate-to-gate transport, the girl was left to transfer herself upon birth, leading to her tragic collapse, according to the Valdosta Daily Times. The girl's family sued Alaska Airlines along with also an airport builder for not appearing after Kekona since they had organized.

"There is no more important duty than the wellbeing and safety of our visitors, if they are in our care or the maintenance of a seller," the airline said in a statement.
