A California family is outraged after a TSA agent aggressively patted down their 10-year-old daughter for nearly two minutes.
Kevin Payne, caught the moment his daughter, Vendela, was checked thoroughly by a TSA agent at an airport in North Carolina before their flight back to San Diego on December 30.
Payne said he and his daughter felt the security check was excessive, uncomfortable and inappropriate.
‘My dad was making funny faces silly faces in the mirror and I felt like screaming the whole time,’ Vendela told NBC San Diego.
The family was stopped after a Capri Sun juice bag was found in Vedela’s bag, which she left there by accident when she went through security at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
The girl was then flagged for extra screening – a pat-down that took nearly two minutes.
‘It was an uncomfortable situation,’ Payne told NBC of TSA’s actions.
But Payne said he tried to stay calm, in hopes of not creating an even bigger scene at the airport.
‘I just kept it as calm, cool, compliant as possible, and she followed suit,’ Payne told San Diego Union Tribune. ‘Deep down I was absolutely fuming, but I knew letting emotions out was only going to worsen the situation for everybody.’
Payne filmed the incident, in which a TSA agent can be seen patting nearly every inch of Vendela’s body. He posted the video to YouTube, where it has more than 17,000 views.
