Teen who suffered loss of leg in accident is called ‘lazy child’ on train, ordered to ‘get up’ from seat

A teenager shared an unfortunate personal story on Reddit — and in a very short time has elicited some 15,000 reactions and 2,000 comments from others on social media who responded to the post.

“A few years ago,” wrote the young woman, identifying herself as a 16-year-old, “I lost my left leg in an accident.”

She said she’s “been using a prosthetic leg since then, and because my family is well [off], it is a pretty advanced one to the point where it just looks like I just have two normal legs whenever I wear long trousers.”

Yet another responder to the tale wrote, “You are not required to tell the world your situation. She forced your hand. Maybe she will think twice next time.”

Said someone else in a simple statement of sympathy, “I’m sorry this happened to you.”
