A Philadelphia Eagles fans stole a prosthetic leg from a Vietnam veteran musician. You read that right.
Sonny Forriest Jr, a musician who sings at Lincoln Financial Field regularly and a Vietnam veteran, had his prosthetic leg stolen during last night’s Giants/Eagles game. Yes, this is true.
The incident occurred last night when Forriest Jr took his leg off because he felt uncomfortable with it on. He put it on the side of his wheelchair where a female Eagle fan in her 20’s took off with the leg.
The leg was later found out of all places a Philadelphia subway car. When she swiped the leg, the unknown 20-year-old apologized profusely.
Philadelphians are known for being very nice yet ruthless people. This is a city where they booed and threw snowballs at Santa Claus at the old Veterans Stadium a few years back.
Forriest Jr will not press any charges.
