A furious father is speaking out after watching his 10-year-old daughter get patted down by a female TSA security agent at North Carolina's Raleigh-Durham International Airport on January 1st.
Kevin Payne recorded the almost 2-minute search on his cell phone and described it as invasive and extremely violating. "Watching this heinous act makes me SICK to my stomach," Payne told CNN.
TSA has responded saying the TSA officer's actions "followed approved procedures" and that under certain circumstances they allow for the pat down of children. The pat down was prompted after a Capri Sun drink was found in the girl's bag and a cell phone in the bag also set off a screening machine's alarm.
