With all the silliness that has gone on at US airports, I thank God this happened somewhere else for a change. Has anyone here had to deal with stupid airport security personnel?
Airport forces girl to remove fake limb
A teen-age athlete and her family is outraged after airport security officials forced her to remove her prosthetic limb in public.
Kathleen O’Kelly-Kennedy, Australia’s tallest female basketball player, says she was humiliated when forced to prove her right leg was a prosthesis in front of dozens of other horrified airline passengers.
“It is quite clear when I lift my pants that I wear a leg prosthesis,”
O’Kelly-Kennedy told the Melbourne Herald Sun.
“I had also given it a few whacks so there was no doubt that it sounded like a false leg. It was too much that security staff then chose to frisk me, from ankle to hip, in front of dozens of other passengers. I had already taken my shoes off, which made standing difficult, and I was not even offered a seat.”
