SAN ANTONIO -- What was supposed to be a fun day at Six Flags in San Antonio for a military veteran and his daughter, ended when he says he was barred from a ride because of his disability.

Sergeant Stephen Jackel proudly served this country. The purple heart recipient lost both his legs in Afghanistan in 2011, so now, he enjoys every moment of his life to its fullest.

But when going to Fiesta, Texas, Wednesday with his 14 year old daughter, he ran into a different type of obstacle when getting on the "Boomerang" Ride.
