For the second time in less than a week, the TSA has been accused of forcing an elderly woman to bear all during an airport security check.
Florida grandmother Ruth Sherman, 88, said she arrived at John F. Kennedy airport to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family in New York.
But when screeners saw the bulge of her colostomy bag, they decided to take a closer look, much to Ms Sherman’s dismay.
‘This is private for me. It’s bad enough that I have it. I had to pull from my sweatpants and I had to pull my underwear, my underwear down.’
