SEATTLE (AP) - A leukemia patient making what she calls an "end-of-life" trip to Hawaii says she was embarrassed by security agents at Sea-Tac Airport who refused her request for a private pat-down when they made her lift her shirt and pull back bandages.
Michelle Dunay also say an agent opened a saline bag, contaminating fluid she needs to survive.
TSA spokeswoman Ann Davis told KOMO-TV (http://is.gd/g6CfEw) it's against policy to deny a private screening for passengers who request it. The agency is looking into the incident.
It happened last week as the Detroit-area woman was traveling through Seattle to Hawaii. Dunaj says she thought she had prepared calling the airline ahead of time and requesting a wheelchair and asking how to send her medicines through security.
