(LONDON DAILY MAIL) — Passengers at airports can now avoid TSA pat downs, long lines and can carry liquids on board by paying $100.
However, the TSA’s new fast track ‘Precheck’ screening is likely to rile the family of a wheel-chair bound toddler who was recently subjected to invasive security checks.
Unlike the background check passengers in the scheme, who will be able to skip screening, the three-year-old was stopped at O’Hare Airport in Chicago.
On his way to a family vacation in Disney, the terrified boy, who was in a cast for a broken leg, underwent an invasive pat down and was swabbed for explosive residue.
Despite constant assurances from his father that ‘everything is ok’, he physically trembles with fear and asks his parents to hold his hand.
