Dying 95-year old granny forced to remove her diaper?

U.S. transportation officials now deny a Florida woman's claims that security forced her 95-year-old leukemia-stricken mother to remove her adult diaper during an airport screening.

Jean Weber, the senior's daughter, alleges on June 18 her wheelchair-bound mother, Lena Reppert, was patted down and then Weber was forced to take her to the bathroom to remove her soiled adult diaper because officers said they found "something suspicious."

The Boston Globe reports the Transportation Security Administration now says it didn't require the removal of the diaper and several options were given during the screening.

It's easy to be a critic when the TSA forces granny to remove her diaper . . . until you remember that, within the past 10 days, terrorists strapped bombs onto a wheelchair and an 8 year old girl.
