Flight attendant and cancer survivor Cathy Bossi goes through a body scanner, despite not wanting to expose herself to radiation. She’s taken back to a screening area for further examination. A TSA agent gropes her and asks “What is this?”
When Bossi tells the agent “It’s my prosthesis because I’ve had breast cancer,” the agent replies, “Well, you’ll need to show me that.” Bossi is forced to remove the prosthesis from her bra and show it to the agent.
The TSA told WBTV, who reported the incident, that agents aren’t allowed to remove prosthetics themselves, but they are allowed to “ask to see and touch” any passenger’s prosthetic.
