Following the emergence of a video of a TSA agent subjecting a scared and confused 6-year old girl to an invasive full body pat down this week, another incident has come to light today in which an 8-year old boy was recently groped in the same way. This despite the fact that the TSA claimed it had changed its security procedure for children.
Young Spencer Sheahan was looking forward to the trip of a lifetime to Disneyland, but the fun was cut short at Portland International Airport in Oregon when a TSA agent pulled the child out of line and frisked him up and down in front of his stunned mother.
“They went up his leg, into that area, down the next leg, up here (chest), felt all over,” Heather Sheahan tells KGW News.
Ms Shehan quickly grabbed her camera and took photos to document the incident.
The pictures can be seen in the following KGW report:
“I was confused,” Spencer told the reporter. “I did not know what they were going to do to me.”
