Elderly woman asked to remove adult diaper during TSA searchVideo below the fold:
A woman has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.
Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.
Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.
“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”...
I'm guessing that the remainder of the journey without a diaper was less than pleasant. Humiliating, in fact.
No apology from the TSA is forthcoming.
What is wrong with the TSA agents, anyway?
