85-year-old says she was strip searched at JFK

[ Yahoo News ] 4 Dec

An 85-year-old woman said Saturday that she was injured and humiliated when she was strip searched at an airport after she asked to be patted down instead of going through a body scanner. 

Lenore Zimmerman, in wheel chair, said she was taken to a private room and made to take off her pants and other clothes after she asked to forgo the screening because she worried it would interfere with her defibrillator. She missed her flight and had to take one 2 1/2 hours later.

However, her allegations are denied by transportation security officials.
