95-year old woman asked to remove adult diaper during TSA search

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.

  1. I'm not looking foreward to my next trip this summer. Maybe I'll drink a lot of coffee and eat lots of fiber and put some adult Pampers on. I wouldn't want to be that TSA agent. Rubber gloves wont help that BBS(bad bowel syndrom). LOL. I do pray that they uphold my wife and two sons rights more so then mine. Seeing a man or a women fondling my family wont make us feel safer.
