Wheelchair ramp stolen from home of disabled woman in Ohio

From Fox8 TV:

A wheelchair-bound Ohio woman had her wheelchair ramp stolen from outside her home, reports.

Cordelia Simpson, 34, said she woke up Thursday morning and realized her ramp was missing.

"I just couldn't believe they would take a wheelchair (ramp). Most people, if you break in, take TVs, computers or something. But they took a ramp, which is like the main access for us to get into and out of the house," she told

Simpson suffers from bone deterioration in both legs and can't get around without a wheelchair or walker.

And to add insult to injury, Simpson says whoever stole the ramp also kicked her three-legged dog in the ribs.

Elyria police are still searching for the missing wheelchair ramp.
