SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are asking for public help in finding an artificial leg that was stolen from a man at an Orange County amusement park.
The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/11BUySE ) says the custom prosthetic, valued at up to $60,000, was in a truck that was stolen from the Knott's Berry Farm parking lot in Buena Park on Memorial Day weekend.
The leg belongs to 53-year-old Juan Hernandez of Santa Ana. He says the computer-controlled knee allowed him to walk and use the gym. For now, he's using a wheelchair and crutches.
Hernandez lost his left leg above the knee when a suspected graffiti vandal ran him down in 2010.
