While TSA has finally given into complaints about its staff groping children, it appears undeterred with geriatrics. A family was horrified last week when TSA subjected Lena Reppert, 95, to a 45 minute search and forced her to remove her adult diaper. Reppert is in the late-stages of leukemia and was traveling to her native Michigan to say goodbye.
She was singled out by TSA because she was in a wheelchair. When they found the adult diaper, she and her daughter were given the choice of either not flying or flying without the adult diaper.
The daughter has now filed a complaint.
