A military veteran who lost both legs in service says he was disrespected by Six Flags employees because of his disability.
Stephen Jackel wanted to ride the rides with his daughter at six flags. While having amputee legs as replacements, looking at this story is both sad and powerful to see a father and man who served his country faithfully and now is not letting anything hold him back from spending quality time with his daughter.
“My daughter was there the entire time,” Stephen Jackel said. “It got so frustrating that I broke down in front of her and cried.”
Jackel says he was told he could not go on a ride with his daughter because their safety policy states that riders must have one functional leg and one functional arm. Yet, Jackel was not told of this policy when he purchased the tickets.
