Airline tells passenger to change seats unless he jumps up and down on his prosthetic leg

An American man was forced to move seats on an Asiana Airlines flight in Beijing because he has a prosthetic leg. The man paid for extra leg room and was sitting next to an emergency exit; the airline feared the disability would prevent him from opening the door in an emergency.

In a cell phone video a flight attendant is seen asking him to prove he can use his leg by jumping up and down or running.  The 31 year old lost his leg to cancer when he was 11, and grew up to be a professional skater.

When the passenger asked to speak with the cabin manager, the flight attendant instead came back with security, who escorted him to a new seat.
