85-year-old New York grandmother – Stripped-Searched by TSA

New York – TSA agents at New York’s JFK airport allegedly strip searched an 84-year-old 4-foot-11 grandmother on Tuesday afternoon. She plans to sue the agency.

“I walk with a walker — I really look like a terrorist,” Lenore Zimmerman told the New York Daily News. “I’m tiny. I weigh 110 pounds, 107 without clothes, and I was strip-searched.”

The Daily News reports:

When Zimmerman reached a security checkpoint, she asked if she could forgo the advanced image technology screening equipment, fearing it might interfere with her defibrillator.

She said she normally gets patted down. But this time, she says that two female agents escorted her to a private room and began to remove her clothes.

“They took me into a private room and pulled down my slacks and pulled down my underwear,” Zimmerman told ABC News.

According to ABC, Zimmerman asked the agents why they were stripping her. She did not receive an answer.

During the ordeal, Zimmerman’s walker struck her legs causing her to bleed.

“I’m on a blood thinner and I bled like a pig so they called an ambulance and I said, ‘please don’t take me to the hospital, just bandage me up,’” she told ABC.

The strip search caused her to miss her 1 p.m. flight. She had to wait over two hours to catch the next plane.

According to the New York Daily News, TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said a review of the footage from the airport shows “proper procedures were followed.”

This isn’t the first time the TSA has been involved in a scandal. Just recently the TSA has promoted an agent who was accused of racial profiling. TSA agents in Virginia have also stopped a pregnant teen with a gun emblazoned on her purse, calling the design a federal offense while causing her to miss a flight.
