Elderly Members from LA Have Trouble Going to Conference

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- A disabled, elderly LDS Church member was injured at 10:50 pm on Sunday, October 6th as she tried to board a Greyhoud bus with seven friends for the return trip to their homes in Los Angeles. Vitalina Mendoza mistakenly released the lock on her wheelchair as it was being lifted into the bus, and she toppled into the buses' stairwell, causing her seven companions, all elderly women, to become hysterical. Mendoza was rushed by ambulance to Salt Lake Regional Hospital. But Greyhound supervisor Elmer Tauvao came to the rescue of the remaining women, giving them vouchers to stay at Salt Lake's Sheraton Hotel and tried to give them tickets for another bus. Instead, most of the women chose to fly home that Monday.
