Amputee called 'cry baby one leg' after neighbour takes her parking space

Ashley Brady was given a disabled parking spot after losing her leg in an accident last year.

A WOMAN WHO recently became an amputee has been attacked in a note after her neighbour took her disabled parking space.

This happened to Ashley Brady, a 26-year-old from Ohio who lost her leg in an accident last year and had to learn how to walk again.

Speaking to Fox 2 News, she said she made a request to her apartment building for the disabled parking space after difficulty getting across the car park during the winter.

I struggled a lot across the parking lot with the snow and ice and I had to learn how to balance and walk. I fell multiple times.

On coming home last Thursday she discovered that someone had parked in her space.

She left what she described as a “stern and confident” note on her neighbours car saying that the parking space had been designated to her.

In response she received this:
