85-Year-Old Grandmother to Sue TSA After Strip Search at JFK Airport

| No Comments

A New York grandmother was completely humiliated Tuesday at JFK Airport in New York during a strip search.

Lenore Zimmerman, 85, said that she was pulled into a private screening room by security and then undressed of all her clothes, Fox News reported.

"I'm hunched over, in a wheelchair, and I weigh under 110 pounds" Zimmerman said. "Do I look like a terrorist?"

According to the Transportation Security Administration, no strip search was conducted, the Associated Press reported.

A statement from TSA stated, "TSA does not include strip searches as part of our security protocols."

Zimmerman said that during the search her shin was gashed by her walker and she "bled like a pig." She did not seek medical attention for her injury.
