JOHNSBURG, Ill. -- A rural Johnsburg man with a prosthetic leg wants some answers: last month he took his son to Six Flags Great America and wasn't allowed on some of the big attractions.

Chris Haynes used to work at a marina and lost his lower leg in an accident. He doesn't walk with crutches. He doesn't park in a handicapped spot because, he says, he doesn't need to. He doesn't think of himself as disabled.

Six Flags Great America sees things differently.

WGN's Julie Unruh has the story.
