TSA forces 95-year-old woman to remove diaper

DESTIN, FL (WFLX) - A Florida woman is speaking out after, she says, TSA screeners forced her 95-year-old mother to take off her adult diaper while going through security.

Jean Weber says she and her mother were flying from the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport to Michigan, so her mother could move in with relatives.

Weber says the security screener was giving her mother a pat-down when the agent said the diaper felt strange and had to be removed in the bathroom.

Weber described their ordeal on CNN. "She was very calm; she can't hear well," said Weber. "If they were explaining things to her, I do not know if they were able to make her understand or not. I was not present. I do not know. But she was calm through it all, and she was upset about not being able to have any underwear on, and I said, 'I don't know what else to do mom. I really don't.'"
