A terrifying story has emerged out of the Denver International Airport where a woman traveling by herself says she was drugged as part of a failed attempt to traffic her.
Madison Herman was traveling through the Denver International Airport earlier this month on her way to Cleveland when she had some time to kill due to an extended layover. Like many passengers do she chose to spend some of that time in an airport bar.
It was here where she thinks her drink was spiked. According to a local news station, Herman admitted to not being fully aware of her surroundings at the bar while she was on the phone with her family. After leaving the bar she felt nauseous and headed for the bathroom where she had an unusual interaction with a woman in the restroom.
The woman reportedly apologized to Herman which was unusual because it wasn’t apparent the woman needed to apologize to Herman. Herman then overheard the woman talking on the phone with a man indicating that it was the first time that we’ve had someone throw up. Herman is reported to have said, ” I was done, and I heard them (the woman who apologized) on the phone. It was a guy on the other line who said, “This is the first time we’ve done this that we’ve had someone throw up.” And so at that point, like, all my red flags went up and I was like, “OK, something is going on here.”
She later boarded her flight but not before realizing the woman and several male companions were on the same flight and interacting with each other in an unusual way. Herman texted her family to let them know about the situation and alerted flight crew who reseated her, but did not initially appear to take her concerns seriously.
The flight continued without incident and Herman was escorted off the flight safely.
Although frustrated at the apparent indifference of the crew and local authorities, Herman went and got drug tested and came back positive for benzos, or Benzodiazepines.
It was at this point that the authorities took the matter more seriously. Herman has stated that the FBI has reached out to her along with the Cleveland police who are investigating.
Herman shared with Denver 7 News why she’s bringing this story forward. “I want to help save future victims and to make law enforcement pay more attention, because who knows how often this is happening,” she said. “I was a perfect target. I was exhausted, emotional, on crutches, paying attention to nothing around me.”
