Woman with prosthetic leg says she was turned away from handicap dressing room

Posted: Updated:

A woman shopping in Dallas, who has a prosthetic leg, says she was turned away from using a handicap dressing room.

The woman lost her leg in a motorcycle accident. She says she was shopping, and needed a bench in a dressing room to sit down.

She says someone working there told her that the room was reserved for women with strollers only.

Eventually, another employee let her into the dressing room.

"When you got to sit there and explain and beg for it, it just makes it, you feel a lot more disabled or a lot more different. Not so normal."
    
The store manager apologized in an email.
