Viral video shows TSA agents patting down young children

Posted: Updated:
In a video that is quickly going viral, a shocked father recorded TSA agents giving his young children full-body pat-downs. His son was just two years old, while his daughter was six years old.

In his recent post on YouTube, the angry father explained that he was selected "as usual" for extra security screening because of his name. Writing under the name "khanzahir100," he recalled that the TSA agents said the kids had to be patted down because they were in contact with him and he had been chosen for additional screening.

The man accused the TSA agents of patting down his children and wife in a "very rude manner." The family involved has not identified themselves, and the exact date and location of the incident is unclear.

In 2011, the TSA announced that it would modify its policy to reduce the likelihood of pat-downs of children under 12.
