Old Woman Told To Remove Adult Diaper By TSA

Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained during an intense TSA search. The elderly woman was trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Ms. Weber's mother, in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.  Ms. Weber said security personnel told her they would need for her mother to remove her Depends diaper because it was soiled and was impeding their 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.”

Sari Koshetz, a spokeswoman for the TSA in Miami, said she could not comment on specific cases. “The TSA works with passengers to resolve any security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner,” she said.

The Gestapo were always sensitive to passenger needs too, according to Heinrich Müller.
