NY man loses prosthetic leg while skydiving
July 18, 2008 2:57 PM EDT

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - An upstate New York man says he's still upbeat despite losing the same leg twice. Scott Listemann told the Poughkeepsie Journal that he laughs about losing his foot and lower leg "both the first time and the second time."

The Poughkeepsie man lost his leg below the knee in a November, 2007 accident. Listemann, 47, lost his prosthetic leg last month while skydiving in upstate New York.

The lower leg below the knee, with a foot clad in a running shoe, flew off after he jumped from the plane but before the parachute opened. Listemann says he's sure "it will show up eventually."

Listemann has distributed flyers throughout upstate Gardiner and hopes someone will find his prosthetic leg and call him.

That guy should equip that thing with a GPS
when he finds it. They're not that much $
nowadays, certainly less than a prosthetic
limb by far. Imagine that though. He don't
let a physical challenge hold the fun back eh ?
Good for him.

A leg falling is a lot different than 18,000 tons of coal rolling in on you when you don;y expect it!

Now that would give him a leg up. Wouldn't it?
