KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The Knoxville-based Amputee Coalition of America says amputees are being mistreated at airport security checkpoints across the nation.

One example, they say, is Peggy Chenoweth, of Gainesville, Virginia, who lost her left leg below the knee in 2003 after an accident.

A few weeks ago, she and her four-year-old son were flying home from a conference when her prosthetic set off the metal detector.

“I always make sure that I wear shorts so then it’s visible. They took me to the little Plexiglas waiting area which I’m very accustomed to. My son came through security, came over and sat right next to me and took my hand. He was immediately yelled at,” Chenoweth said. “He started to cry. I wasn’t allowed to comfort him. I wasn’t allowed to give him a hug because I hadn’t been cleared.”
