Vet's Prosthetic Leg Found

Vet’s prosthetic leg has been found. Sonny Forriest, a Vietnam veteran was celebrating his birthday by catching the Giants-Eagles game at the Citizens Bank Park, when a drunk woman stole his prosthetic leg and ran off with it. Forriest’s fake limb was found seven hours later in a subway train. Philadelphia police have not been able to arrest the thief.

Vet’s prosthetic leg found, seven hours after it was stolen by a crazy and drunk lady. On Sunday, Sonny Forriest Jr. decided to celebrate his 57th birthday by attending the Giants-Eagles game at the Citizens Bank Park Sports complex in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Forriest, a Vietnam veteran, enjoyed a great match where his team, The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants, 27-0. But once the game ended, the birthday celebration turned into a nightmare.

As he was outside of the stadium, the vet who loves to sing, decided to belt out few tunes to entertain other Eagles fans. The veteran who lost his left leg in combat, removed his prosthetic limb because it was hurting and placed it on his wheelchair.

That is, when an intoxicated woman in an Eagles shirt grabbed the prosthetic leg and ran away with it. As the mad thief was running away with the faux leg, she told the vet that she will pay for it. The vet told local media:

“She jumped in my lap. She gripped my leg and I didn’t even know it. I looked down and she took my leg! Then she disappeared! A young lady came up, snatched my leg off my chair and took off!”

Police officers from the Philadelphia Police Department, who were investigating the theft, received a call about seven hours later from someone who found the vet’s prosthetic leg.

According to the cops, the vet’s prosthetic leg was found at the Fern Rock Transportation Center in Olney, Pennsylvania. The thief has not been caught and the vet’s prosthetic leg is worth $2000.
