TSA Defends Diaper Check on Dying 95-Yr-Old Cancer Patient

From the International Business Times:
The Transport Security Administration (TSA) has defended a recent pat-down act on a 95-year old cancer patient, Lena Reppert, who was forced to remove her diaper as part of security check.

Jean Weber, Reppert's daughter, has filed a complaint with the federal authorities over the incident.

However, the TSA stood by its officers and released the following statement:

'While every person and item must be screened before entering the secure boarding area, TSA works with passengers to resolve security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner. We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure.'
