Wheelchair-Bound 3-Year-Old Subjected To Invasive Search At Chicago Airport

Boy Invasive Search

There is absolutely no excuse for the way this TSA agent treated this terrified little boy. Watch the shocking video below!

This is no way to start off a vacation! On what was supposed to be a fun-filled trip to Disney World with his family, a 3-year-old boy confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg was taken aside by a TSA agent at a Chicago airport in the spring of 2010 and physically searched for no reason. Throughout the ordeal, the toddler’s parents were prohibited from physically comforting him, and were only allowed to verbally reassure him everything would be OK. Even with his mom and dad nearby, the little boy can be seen trembling!

The search included a pat-down — and even a swabbing for explosives! How ridiculous!

Thankfully, the little boy’s father — who could hardly contain his anger over the mistreatment of his son — caught the whole thing on camera.

We just hope the negligent TSA agent received the appropriate punishment for his reprehensible behavior.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers?

Chicago airports are super strict. They made my grandmother who had a knee replacement have full exam. That TSA agent wasn’t even that bad compared to what I’ve seen there.

Courtney, I totally agree. If you choose to fly, you choose to be subjected to possible screenings and pat downs. He’s doing his job. If you don’t like it, stay home!

The TSA agent is clearly just doing his job, and doing it well, in my opinion. He is obviously gentle with the child and trying to put him at ease.

When you make the decision to fly and have your children fly, you also make the decision to submit to security procedures. If you expect to take a wheelchair through security, you have to realize some special precautions will have to be taken.

If the child was so upset (and he doesn’t seem to be), maybe the father should have focused on making it less scary rather than whipping out his video camera and shoving it in the kid’s face asking, “Are you nervous?”

I think the man was doing his job, you hear of parents hiding drugs in babies nappies and prams so why not in a kids wheelchair.

I saw the video and the man only did his job. He wasn’t cruel in any way.
