The 52-year-old dance instructor and TV personality was at the Pittsburgh International Airport using American Airlines when she fell off her wheelchair

"Help! 'I've fallen, and I can't get up' isn't that the truth? Let's just say my transfer from the isle chair to my chair didn't go so well! The move should've happened on the bridge like usual and not in front of a hundred people waiting to board" she wrote alongside the picture on Instagram.

Abby went further ahead to shame the staff of the airline for improperly handling her plight by writing:

"I shouldn't have had to ask for someone to call the paramedics, and maybe the @americanair Gate Mgr should've at the very least asked if I was ok?"
